We have a user that has a a 360gb TrueCrypt volume in his my documents.  The computer has the TC volume open up when the computer starts, every time .  However, when he logs out from his computer or when an apps or Windows is updated and required restart, the user never dismount the volume.  We understand that there is an option (and it is checked) in TC where it automatically dismounts its volumes when a user is logged-off (we assume also when shutting down), but what happens when the computer halts or "freezes" when there is no reactions from keyboard or mouse and the user is force to restart or power off the device?

There has been no complaints as to the TC volume until now - last night some files could not be found within the volume.

what happens to the TC volume when a forced restart without dismounting the volume?
