    Dear Experts

    I had created a hidden volume on USB Flash Drive (stick) and yes I remember the password today I tried to access it as below

    what I am doing wrong ?

    Thanks

    Is there any chance you are clicking on D and trying to open the volume? You have to click on M which is the virtual drive that you mounted the D encrypted volume to. In other words on Windows its now the M drive not the D drive. The M drive is not a static choice, in that the next time you mount the encrypted volume on D you might select another letter for the virtual drive. Understand?
