    This section is meant to contain threads about individual problems using encryption products. This includes things like corrupted drives or headers, errors while decrypting, file recovery and so on. I say "individual" because in almost all cases these threads are likely to be of direct use only to the thread starter. Although, as sample cases, they may have value to others in similiar situations. But, since each person's specific issue is likely to vary some what from someone elses, each person with such a problem should start their own thread.

    General discussions on how to use encryption products, including things like the best way to configure the software, drive or container, how to ensure recoverability in case of errors, good passphrase choices, and whatever else, should still go in the "privacy technology" section, as those topics are of much wider use to all people using these technologies.
