than my boot drive.
I had a volume open working on it when there was a power outage. This has
happened before with no bad results.
However, after power restoration, I go back in, and find all of the
TrueCrypt volumes gone. No trace of them. Empty folder.
So...I go to the backup DVD's I had copied them to. Although I had mounted
each volume after I made the DVD's, my Plextor drive now refuses to read
them. Big lesson learned for cheap spindle DVD's.
Then, I used a utility I have called "Restoration", which lets me recover
deleted files. Looking at the drive the volumes were on, there's absolutely
no trace of them or anything close top their size.
I then checked the boot drive, and ditto, no trace.
I'm hoping the learned might suggest how I can find/recover the volumes.
I'm using TrueCrypt 4.1 with Windows XP Pro.
