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

TryeCrypt icon color is brown means volume is mounted

Problem when I double click on the volume to access it a message pops up if I want to format it !!!

what I am doing wrong ?

I'm just throwing out a guess but if D: is the letter assigned to your flash drive change the letter assigned to it in Disk Management then try mounting the hidden volume again.


TrueCrypt is no longer supported, I would advise moving to VeraCrypt which is a fork of Truecrypt and fixed some of the things found in the audit of Truecrypt.

You can't just double click it...open True Crypt first, steer TC to the file/volume/container, then attempt to mount it, it should ask the password and/or key at that point...
