    TrueCrypt problem

    I tried to get a sign up logon for the TrueCrypt forum but received
    a confirmation email saying that my account could not be created. So
    I am going to post the problem here and at sci.crypt.

    I have two encrypted TrueCrypt volume files where I keep secured
    data (neither entire disk encryption). One is on my main disk (C:\)
    and the other is on an external disk drive (Z:\). I have both listed
    as favorite volumes. When I initially start TrueCrypt, click on Mount
    Favorite Volumes, click Cancel in the Enter Password box for the 1st
    TrueCrypt file (I mount this on Q:\), enter the password for the 2nd
    volume in the Enter Password box (I mount this on S:\), click exit of
    the main TrueCrypt window, click the TrueCrypt icon to bring the main
    TrueCrypt back up, click the Mount button to mount the Volume listed
    in the dropdown box and enter the password, - TrueCrypt then causes
    the 1st volume that I mounted to remain mounted but the volume
    disappears in the 'Drive Volume Size...' list and the volume that was
    supposed to mount on Q:\, mounts on a completely new drive. This
    sequence mounts the volume on a new drive every time it is done and
    the subsequent drive letter becomes unusable.

    This is serious problem. Sorry I couldn't get a logon into
    TrueCrypt.

    The drive problem apparently cleared up with a reboot. It also may
    have had something to do with 2xExplorer.

    Registry differences between two mounts:

    I stopped taking part in the Truecrypt forum the day they asked for my
    ISP email address, apparently a free one is not enough for them because
    of spam problems, but the other 99% of boards I know of seem to manage
    it pretty well without any ISP email.

    Returning to your problem, I do not know the answer, but apparently
    there is a new version of Truecrypt released, today, and that may solve
    any possible bug.

    ....

    It is ironic - and very annoying - that Truecrypt insists on trying to
    compromise one's privacy to join their forums. However, I have found that
    their lists of "unacceptable" email addresses is rather limited. It took
    very little effort for me to find an anonymous email source that wasn't on
    their blacklist.

    I've seen this same issue, My solution so far has been to Click Settings>Preferences check the box for “Mount Volumes as Removable Media”
