I had a truecrypt volume before as I had whole disk encrypted my hard drive.
However silly Windows decided to format it when I installed Windows 8.1.
I was trying some methods to get it back, but nothing was working. Truecrypt was however recognising a Volume Header before. I tried to recover the truecrypt header via the one that should have been embedded in the drive, truecrypt said it successfully repaired it.
I was then able to mount it, however I was still allowed to access the actual drive itself and store files on it. When the drive was mounted, I was asked to format, which I tried. However Windows said the format failed.
I thought all was lost so I deleted the volume via disk management and created a new volume (the reason why is irrelevant - Windows related issue).
Now Truecrypt doesn't even recognise the volume header so I have concluded deleting the volume was a bad idea.
Is there some way I can recover the truecrypt volume?
The drive has not been written to - unless Windows has decided to go one step further and frustrate me further.
