Truecrypt + WPI

Recommended Posts

Hi!

(Sorry my bad english)

I have a problem. Here is the short description:

I have a 2 GB container file, created with truecrypt. I copied the wpi folder to this container. I configured it and filled up with many programs, and it's all fine. THEN burned the truecrypt and the container to a dvd, I mounted to any drive letter, and when I run the WPI, pop up the folowing error (not word by word): "This disk isn't writable. blablabla."

I think WPI only recognize CD/DVD drives and when it is happening WPI don't have writeable permission.

But in this case, in this mounted partition WPI WANTS to be writable his own folder. (remember: wpi in the container, and on the (read only) DVD)

How can I disable this feature, or what other suggestion you have?

I wants to the wpi folder is encrypted, and only I can see what is in it.

I hope I was understandable.

Thank you.

(You can tested without dvd burning: when mount the container, in the "Mount options" page check the "Mount volume as read-only" option.)

If I understand right, no, it won't be fixed. Not the same problem.

If you are mounting the partition as a cd/dvd drive, then WPI will see it as that and can't be written to. That is what Window's is telling WPI it is. If you mount it as a read/write harddrive then yes, WPI will see it as a harddrive and write normally.

It's not what letter you are using, it's what kind of device you have the partition set as.
