TC and partition type editing on a flash I am curious if anyone here can help me figure this out. When using device based volume encryption I find that Windows always wants to format the drive when I insert e.g. a WDE flash drive. I understand that the RAW flash drive appears unformatted and windows wants to format/fix it. I do understand why so that is not my question. I know there is a simple way to format a flash in ext2/ext3 and then put a device based TC volume on it. I want to learn how to do that so that windows will stop asking me to format my flash/external drives every single time I insert them in the computer. I see lots of people using what appears to be this approach. Can someone describe how I can format these to work? So far I have used Partition Manager and formatted a flash in ext2 and then another trial in ext3. I insert the flash drive and instantly windows wants to format them. What gives and how can I get this done? Should I just change the partition table somehow? KISS will ya? LOL!!
