Truecrypt: The Folder Content Could Not be Displayed...HELP!

Postby laukce01 on Fri Nov 23, 2012 1:59 am

I just installed Truecrypt and after I mount the volume that I created and I try to click on the file or folder that is encrypted it says: "The Folder Contents Could Not Be Displayed. You do not have the permissions to view the contents of "lost+found". Also this lost and found folder has an X and a pad lock on it.

How can I get access to this folder so I can start saving unicorns in it and encrypting it.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

lost+found is a system folder used by checkdisk to put inodes that are not marked as deleted but is not attached to any file inode. In effect, this is where checkdisk places file remnants that are recovered but with no file name
Therefore you are not allowed to mess with it if you are not root, and only then if you first change permissions on the folder. It is unwise to do anything with lost+found directories unless you know exactly what you are doing. Placing files there and encrypting does not sound like "know exactly what you are doing" and therefore I recommend "Hands off".

When I double click on the mounted folder as shown in "Screenshot" attached below, I get the Lost-Found folder as shown in "Screenshot-1". When I double click on that I get the error message as shown in Screenshot-2 attachment.

What am I doing wrong? I've seen others on Youtube start a Truecrypt volume and not have any problems as they open the Lost+Found folder, etc.

I think I figured it out. For some reason when I use FAT as the file system vs Linux it seems to work. Not sure why.
