Windows 7: True Crypt & ReFS

15 Jun 2013   #1

Win 7-64
True Crypt & ReFS

Does True Crypt have any problems with ReFS Files - volumes, partitions or entire hard drives formatted with ReFS?


1) I want to install TC on a Thumb Drive (FAT of course)

2) And then use the TC Thumb Drive (FAT) to encrypt various drives on my other computers, with their file system being ReFS - Not NTFS.

Note: I understand ReFS fairly well, just not True Crypt.

This article may have answered my question. Don't know what they mean specifically by "encryption" though.

Very, very useful article:

Type ReFS in the search funtion

Perhaps you might ask there again?
