    somehow TC is not accepting my passwd. i took disk to friend and we tried to crack it like this: http://www.tateu.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=246

    i do have my password and i assume just 3 characters inside are wrong (possibly).

    yet the documputer cannot see the TC drive [sees it as empty] disk. so i cant run any program as thry all ask for some .iso or .t file.

    any ideas how to run my diskso it can be then cracked?

    Does TC see the disk when you click on Select Device?

    Years ago, one of my whole-disk TC-encrypted flash drives didn't show up in Select Device, but mounted OK using Auto-Mount Devices. But, a few weeks later, it bricked.

    computer sees it as empty disk [because files are encrypted]. it says how much of data is used but doesnt show single file there, justk nows theres data used.

    i dont know what to do, since none of programs can take it.

    TC sees all my disks [and partitions on it].

    when i try to mount it with truecrypt it always wants my password [which i obviously dont have]. i can only mount partitions not whole HD somehow.
    anything left?

    Windows can't do much with an encrypted disk or partition. That's normal. If you encrypt an entire disk then the disk will show up in Disk Manager as RAW & uninitialized, and Windows will offer to initialize, partition and then format it. If you encrypt a partition then the partition will show up in both Disk Manager and Explorer, but Windows won't see any valid contents and will offer to format it. An encrypted file is merely a file, and Windows can handle that just fine. It just can't open it or see anything meaningful inside. In all three cases all that Windows sees is a big block of meaningless-looking data, whether it is on a disk, in a partition or in a file. The only convenient way to access and decrypt the encrypted data is to use TrueCrypt.

    Your best bet is to try to discover the missing portion of your password by using either OTFBrutusGUI or some other TC password cracking tool. If you are only missing three characters and you can narrow down their positions then the task might be doable. Are you having trouble selecting your volume in the program interface? If so then you probably just need to learn how to use OTFBrutusGUI. I suggest creating a small TC test container and practicing on that.

    Also, please clarify: Are you dealing with a fully-encrypted drive, an encrypted partition, or an encrypted file?

    i have 100% encrypted drive that has 4 partitions.

    all programs that are cracking password ask me to give them keyfile location or some .tc file. i have no files i just have my drive. drive has 4 partition that are fully encrypted. TV sees partitions but cant mountthem since i dont hvae password. is that more clear?

    im new to cracking anything or having problems with TC so i may not be giving info. speaking shiorty i dont know how ot make full drive attached to cracking program, because it wants some files or some content not just a drive.

    In OTFBrutusGUI, when you click on Select Device you should see a device selection screen that lists all available hard drives and partitions. For example, one of the choices might read as follows: \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\Harddisk1\Partition1. Select the desired partition or drive from the list, then set up the password search etc.
