On a NTFS formatted drive, I can use testdisk to recover files.

However, if I mount a NTFS formatted volume which is located inside a TrueCrypt encrypted volume, testdisk does not work, however photorec does work though.


A TrueCrypt Volume can either be in a TrueCrypt file or an encrypted partition/device.

If you want to create a TrueCrypt file or encrypt a partition/device with TrueCrypt, instructions are here:

(Instead of a FAT filesystem, select NTFS.)
