    Hey, new to this site.... sorry if this thread is in the wrong area.

    I had a few questions pertaining to DCPP (DriveCrypt Plus Pack) and TrueCrypt. I have been using DCPP for OS encryption and TrueCrypt for making hidden volumes. I have a partition just for my OS and apps. Then 3 partitions for storage. My main questions are: If I run into problems with corruption or something that results in an unbootable OS, will I be able to reinstall Windows over my original encrypted OS partition? If so, when I have the fresh install up, will I be able to install TrueCrypt and gain access back to my hidden volumes as well?

    If this is confusing let me know and I'll try to explain it a little better.

    Yes to all questions.

    However, some people have had problem with TC partition corruption when reinstalling windows onto the boot partition. So you should probably back up the header of the TC partition if you have no backup of the data on the partition. I've never experienced any corruption myself and wouldn't hesitate to do what you described on my own system.
