Hi, I am trying to pool 2 x 1.5TB drives into a single 2.xTB partition on Windows 7. I have converted the two disks to GPT disks for starters (to get around the 2TB limit the resultant DrivePool drive will be greater than). I then formatted the two disks as NTFS partitions and then added them to a new pool in DrivePool and I get a 2.72TB partition like I want (which I alloated to Z:). FYI both disks are plugged into a USB dual-bay hard drive dock (so dynamic volumes aren’t an option for me as I’m sure many would know). I already use TrueCrypt, however I cannot get the DrivePool-created drive (Z:) to be encrypted in TrueCrypt.
I have tried the following:
1) Created the DrivePool as drive Z:. It is mounted in the o/s like a normal drive.
In TrueCrypt: 2) Selected "Tools" -> "Volume creation wizard"
3) "Encrypt a non-system partition drive"
4) "Standard TrueCrypt volume"
5) "Select device" -> "Z:"
6) "Encrypt partition in place", click "next" and get "Incorrect function" dialog,
I click "OK", then I receive an error about the disk being damaged: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/f314147d-53eb-435c-92a5-6a2b464372c0.jpg
I click "OK" and another error about not being able to access the volume appears: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/bbb6614c-51f8-4602-be3f-6ccf15f018b7.jpg
So, instead of “Encrypt partition in place”, I chose “Create encrypted volume and format it”, “Aes” (default), default size, enter password, “Yes” to files over 4gb (Default=no), shows it’s selected “NTFS”, move the mouse around, click “Format”, click ”Yes” to proceed, a second or two later I get an error telling me it can't dismount the partition: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/5b7ff999-63e0-4f9f-97fe-b16f2c53f41b.jpg
I click “OK and then I receive and I get a final error saying it finally failed to create a volume: http://stablebit.com/Content/UploadedAssets/Images/76ec2bb0-3384-450b-85a2-bec383328970.jpg And I click “Cancel” to abort and that's where I am at. Can anyone tell me what needs to be done to get the encryption working? Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.
