    truecrypt, bitlocker

    Hi David

    Thanks for that. I think the rescue disk will probably restore the original bootloader. I think I will carry on using Truecrypt for now on my data drives (with some more frequent external backups!) until it does not work.

    I don't really have anything to hide just want to make sure if machines are stolen data is secure.

    I still don't trust that Truecrypt development was not knobbled by NSA and that all the stuff we are seeing, Veracrypt, TCNext, isn't all part of the same drive to get people to stop using Truecrypt.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    advantage of leaving truecypt bootloader when system drive decrypted

    Having successfully decrypted the system partition setting the data partition (still encrypted) as a truecrypt favourite volume (rather than system favourite) AND leaving the truecrypt bootloader in place, using it to log on as before, means that the data partition is still mounted at boot up and ALSO that folders shared to homegroup remain shared.

    Can avoid the MS tyranny for a little longer
