UBCD and TrueCrypt

#1 Post by ubcduser » Wed Jan 01, 2014 8:23 pm

I has a flashdrive created using YUMI with a bunch of utilities, including UBCD 5.2.8. I am using TrueCrypt on a system partition. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to mount the partition using truecrypt from YUMI or UBCD and then running whatever program from YUMI menu or UBCD menu? I know that I can run the TC Rescue Disk to decrypt the partition, but wanted to avoid that. It would be nice to be able to mount the partition and then run whatever application desired.

I know this is a long shot, but giving the popularly of TC, I thought someone may have figured out a solution.

TrueCrypt requires an "environment" to run, whether that be Windows, Linux, Or Mac OS. This would not be possible because there is no DOS version of truecrypt. Therefore, neither with YUMI nor UBCD would you be able to decrypt a partition/file. Your best bet would either be use a Linux LiveCD/DVD with TrueCrypt included and run the programs you need after decrypting the drive, or building a WindowPE, good guide is here: https://gverswijvel.wordpress.com/tag/winpe-5-0/

Sorry to disappoint. :(
