    Hello everybody
    i have a 250gb Container that has a hidden volume of 150gb.
    Two days ago, i tried to open the Hidden volume after mounting it, but windows said "The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable".
    I tried to fix it with TrueCrypt "Chkdsk" but it said that the "Master table file is damaged, and windows will try to fix it", i waited around 30 mins and then it said windows couldnt fix it :(.
    I googled alot and i got here, read a couple of thread and tried to let Truecrypt restore the volume header, but no luck :(. I also tried WinHex, but got lost :(. im a noob in these stuff.
    i copied the container to another hard disk and i mounted it then i formatted the hidden volume, it opened but without any of my data, tried to restore the files, got like 2% of them only.

    Guys please, could you help me to either fix the original hidden volume or restore my files from the formatted disk, The data i have hidden worth too much to me :(( ?

    Thank you in advance guys:)

    @dantz , anyone :'( !

    Edit:
    The container size is 250gb, the Hidden volume is 150. I think the problem is i wrote more than 100gb on the Outer volume.
    any fix for that :( ?

    Edit #2:
    I dont know if this helps but when i tried to scan the hidden volume " from the copy that i didnt format" with Recuva, it found the same files ( the 1% files that were found with the formatted copy of the volume ). and Recuva showed a header for the hidden volume
