Re: Hard Drive not recognized

I did not install Truecrypt on Mint. When I installed Mint 17 i disconnected the WD 1TB HHD. I connected it about a week after installing Mint and the crypt program for mint asked for a passphrase... so I entered a passphrase and the drive functioned properly for 2-3 weeks.

Re: Hard Drive not recognized

It was originally formatted but not partitioned with Windows Vista 64-bit. It is only used for data storage. I used Truecrypt for security and password protection.
