Hi guys. I am a developer of this free tool. Let me clarify the 'hard drive' recovery. The software is able to restore accidentally deleted files from built-in hard disk drives as long as two the following conditions are met:

1. The file was deleted recently and no writing was made on the volume after that

2. Follows from 1. If you delete a file from a system volume (e.g. C:\), there are little chances to restore it because the OS is constantly writing on this volume (logs, registry branches, etc).

Excellent product. Recovered two files from flash memory. Simple and efficient, and no installation

of V1.2.0.0 which is the correct size 272KB.
Andy can you explain. Looks a bit dodgy

To manually set the path to wallpaper to the application directory or a sub-directory just use the pathway setting as a period, seems to work on my machine at least. Vista SP1

IE "LastPath=."

TrueCrypt v7.1a

Midas on 26 Apr 2016

TrueCrypt creates and opens secure volumes that function like an attached drive, making it possible to move files to and from a secure place, as well as open and run. Additional security features include support for key files and hidden volumes inside regular ones (for plausible deniability) for higher security, as well as hardware acceleration and benchmark tools for speed.

Supports a range of encryption algorithms including AES, Serpent, and Twofish, as well as combinations (e.g. Serpent + Twofish) in the event that one of them is eventually cracked.

Note: This program may have unfixed security vulnerabilities.  As version 7.2 only allows the opening of TrueCrypt volumes, not their creation, we are linking to a mirrror of Version 7.1a.

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: None
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? No. Writes "LEGACY_TRUECRYPT" driver settings to the registry.
License: Open Source: TrueCrypt License Version 3.0 (donate)
How to extract:
  1. Download and launch the installer
  2. Select the Extract option to extract files to a folder of your choice
  3. Launch TrueCrypt.exe
For more information on the available options of running TrueCrypt in portable mode, read the section on Traveler Mode.

There are two TrueCrypt clones, VeraCrypt 1.0c and HaDES 1.1.

VeraCrypt seems to be still active.

HaDES seems to be a dead link.

Mixture on 2014-05-29 15:47

Even the Wayback Machine (web.archive.org) has excluded the TrueCrypt/sourceforge and Truecrypt.org webpages.

TrueCrypt has gone - v7.2 instructs you to stop using it
