    Hi, I have a problem with my encrypted partition. When I opened it using truecrypt windows says that it doesn't have a file system etc.

    I did alot of googleing and found this thread
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=336671

    I followed dantz guide and everything went same to the point that we would create new partition in the computer management. Mine says that the harddisk is raw. So I'm guessing that the start point of my partition is broken.

    When I mount that partition and use PhotoRec I can restore files from it.
    I was just wondering is there any way to fix that table?

    From winhex it says that total capacity is 2 000 398 934 016 bytes.
    Truecrypts volume properties says that it is 2 000 396 484 608 bytes.

    All help is appreciated, thank you in advance! And sorry for my english, it's not my first language.

    It seems tgat that truecrypt partition broke when I installed windows 7 to my ssd. I just tested my pc and found out that it doesnt boot to windows with out that 2tb hdd. So im guessing that windows installer put that bootloader on that 2tb hdd and that is why it broke that truecrypt partition.

    If this is the case, anyway of fixing it?
