I have a hard disk containing a TrueCrypt volume on /dev/sdc. It is formated with NTFS. I am running Ubuntu 9.4.
To mount the volume I tried this:
sudo truecrypt -t -k "" --protect-hidden=no /dev/sdc /mnt/data
After providing the correct password I get the following error:
Error: $LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0) Failed to mount '/dev/mapper/truecrypt1': Operation not supported Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use. Choose one action: Choice 1: If you have Windows then disconnect the external devices by clicking on the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the Windows taskbar then shutdown Windows cleanly. Choice 2: If you don't have Windows then you can use the 'force' option for your own responsibility. For example type on the command line: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/mapper/truecrypt1 /mnt/data -o force Or add the option to the relevant row in the /etc/fstab file: /dev/mapper/truecrypt1 /mnt/data ntfs-3g force 0 0
I think, I need to pass the force mount-option somehow to the mount command. But how? The following does not work:
sudo truecrypt -t -k "" --protect-hidden=no --mount-options="-o force" /dev/sdc /mnt/data Error: Unknown option: -o force
