I have TrueCrypt encrypted 40GB external drive that has bad headers or footers or something caused by Windows trying to initialize it. (thanks to this site for explaining this to me) The internal fix programs say they restore it but when I mount the volume, the only message is "Do you Want to Format this drive?" There is no option for "no, I just want to see my data please please please?" tsk. The whole drive is encrypted so there seems no way to access my data even though I have my password. I am looking for suggestions from you good people on Data Retrieval programs or methods before I am forced to accept the fact that everything is gone forever. If this is the wrong forum I apologize.
