    hi

    why does Windows 7 want always format a truecrypt partition ?

    i have an external hard disk

    2 partition ntfs file system

    1 was encrypted with truecrypt 32bit under Windows 7 32bit

    everytime , Windows 7 pop up with a request to format the drive

    i don't auto mount the partition , i mount the partition always when i need

    so when the partition is not mounted , Windows 7 asks me to format

    it's very boring

    can i avoid it?

    thanks
    cheers

    ps this doesn't happen with xp

    Go to the Computer Management > Disk management and remove the letter Windows is setting to this partition, i.e., it will be a drive not mapped (without a letter).

    Because it is seen as RAW. Do the above mentioned procedure.

    PD
