I have a true crypt drive where I kept some important files, and I just noticed when I mount the drive that the drive appears as empty. In properties it doesn't say how many files, or even 0 files, but it does say there is space used which makes me think they are still there somewhere. I actually had a backup but it seems I somehow backed up the same broken version. 

 

Anyone have any idea how I can view the files?

Is this an encrypted container or is the whole volume encrypted?  Is this drive a USB flash drive? You can mount the drive, correct? If the drive is mounted but no files are found you could try running PhotoRec on the mounted drive to see if it can recover any files.

 

If this is a container file and not the full volume you can make a copy of it and then mount it with the option to use the backup header if available. I would only do this with a backup copy.
