    New member and I can really use some help.
    I have an encrypted flash HD that was set up using TrueCrypt. Today, as I was trying to access it, it told me the header was corrupted and told me to repair it. It is 64GB and I didn't know any better so I had to go ahead and have TC repair the header using backup stored on the HD.

    TC said it successfully repaired the header, but now when I try to access the volume this happens:

    1) I CAN successfully mount it, it accepts the password, and lists itself as \Device\Harddisk1\Partition0

    2) After mounting, when I try to access the volume it says "(drive letter) is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system."

    This HD contains years and years of family photos, videos and documents.

    I have come across the following threads:https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/truecrypt-volume-corrupted-non-accessible.337041/ --- https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/truecrypt-missing-partition-table.336671/
    and they seem to be very applicable to my situation. I am trying to do a sector by sector clone as Dantz recommended. I am using the paid version of AOMEI Backup Professional software. When I select my drive, it says "the empty disk cannot be cloned. You can use the freeware AOMEI Partition Assistant". What do I do? If I create a partition on my original I destroy the files yes? Am I using the wrong software?
