I have 1TB HD, and on the hard drive I created a partition (488Gb) that is TrueCrypt encrypted device with a hidden volume (200Gb). 
Mistakenly I re installed windows to that partition and TrueCrypt wont mount the device. I used "Volume Tools-Restore header" and got the device to mount (only the non-hidden volume tho) but I cant view the contents because im getting the "Do you want to format?" message followed by an error stating it cant read it. 
I used every kind of data recovery software and only got back a couple of the files. There has got to be a way I can fix the volume. Please HELP!!!

**I ran CHKDSK r on it and nothing more came out of it other than my PC recognizes the partition now.

I fear that you have overwritten your encrypted data when you re-installed XP.

 

What kind of files do you need to recover?

Mostly pictures and videos. I had almost 20gb worth of family albums and gatherings in there.

Trying data recovery that can recognize pictures and videos is your best bet in my opinion, but I see you already tried that.

The volume mounts and i'm able to scan it, but windows says its corrupt and cannot open it. Is there a way to fix that so I can open it normally?
