Truecrypt - takes several attempts to mount TrueCrypt File
Posted on 2014-04-05
I have used TrueCrypt for about 5 years. It has always been rock solid until today.
On my Windows 7 Dell Desktop (purchased 2009), I created a new Truecrypt file. When I tried to open it later, the error message was "incorrect password".
It would take several attempts before I could mount the file. by several attempts, I mean I would close out TrueCrypt and open it again. At times, I would reboot it. The reboot didn't always work. I also entered the password by typing it or pasting it from a text file to ensure it was not my mis-typing.
I removed TrueCrypt and redownloaded the program and created a new file. I still had the same problem.
I then loaded a 2011 Truecrypt from a different computer to open this file. This also had the same problems.
Eventually, it does open. How do I resolve this?
