I hope someone here can help me. I decided to encrypt my Hard Drive with Truecrypt a couple weeks ago. My intentions at the time were to encrypt the drive then wipe it with DBAN before selling my computer. Well because of Christmas and all I did not get right to it and even ended up using the computer again. Now I thought I knew the password but I have it seem to have forgotten it. Now the problem is that I never got a chance to backup the new files. Normally this would not be a problem as I leave my computer running 24/7. Unfortunately the power was interupted today and now I can't get back into my Hard Drive. I definitely know part of the password. I actually remember the 1st 37 characters. I also think I know some of the words I used in the rest of the password. I have downloaded true.crypt.brute and OTFBrutusGUI, niether program can access the drive. Actually true.crypt.brute can see the drive but OTFBrutusGUI cannot. When I try to click on the encrypted Drive I keep getting the same message, that the drive needs to be formatted. My question is, how do I get these programs to see and decrypt the drive?
