Mount True Crypt Device

Recommended Posts

grasshopper3

I am trying to mount a True Crypt device. I have used the _TC.au3 include (found in the forums) to mount a True Crypt volume, but it doesn't seem to work for a device (\Device\Harddisk1\Partition1). Does anyone know how to mount a True Crypt device.

Thanks

Try a full device path, more like: "\\.\Device\Harddisk1\Partition1"

:idea:

Edit: The docs say that's only required for a volume name: "\\?\Volume{5cceb196-48bf-46ab-ad00-70965512253a}"

"/v \Device\Harddisk1\Partition3" is explicitly used as and example, so that syntax should work. They are case sensitive, though.

I tried that method. It works in command line, but when I add it in the AutoIt script it doesn't work. Can someone else test it on their True Crypt and tell me if it has some thing to do with my Device or setup?

Can someone please help. I am still trying to mount a True Crypt device instead of a container. I have tried the following methods without success.

FileWrite(@Scriptdir & "\Mount.bat",'"C:\Program Files\TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe" /volume ' & $Volume & ' /letter ' & $DrLetter & ' /auto /p "' & $Pass & '" /q')
RUn(@Scriptdir & "\Mount.bat", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

I couldn't get the RUN command to run the batch file

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & '"C:\Program Files\TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe" /volume ' & $Volume & ' /letter ' & $DrLetter & ' /auto /p "' & $Pass & '" /q',"", @SW_HIDE)

_TC.au3

;_TC.au3 V0.1.2A
#include-Once

;Gets or sets the path of the TrueCrypt executable (only needed if truecrypt is installed to a different path)
Func _TC_Path($sPath = "")
    Static $sTCPath = @ProgramFilesDir & "\TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe"
    Switch $sPath
        Case ""
            Return $sTCPath
        Case Else
            $sTCPath = $sPath
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_TC_Path

;Mounts a TrueCrypt volume
;@Error=1: $sVol does not exist or is a directory
;@Error=2: $cLetter was not valid (must be in the format "E" not "E:" or "E:\")
;Return 1:Success
;Return 0:Failure
Func _TC_Mount($sVol, $cLetter, $sPassword = "")
    If Not FileExists($sVol) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If StringInStr(FileGetAttrib($sVol), "D") Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)

    If StringLen($cLetter) <> 1 Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    If Not StringIsAlpha($cLetter) Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)

    Switch $sPassword
        Case ""
            Return Not RunWait('"' & _TC_Path() & '" /q /v "' & $sVol & '" /l' & $cLetter)
        Case Else
            Return Not RunWait('"' & _TC_Path() & '" /q /s /p "' & $sPassword & '" /v "' & $sVol & '" /l' & $cLetter)
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_TC_Mount

;Unmounts a TrueCrypt Volume
;@Error=1: $cLetter was not valid (must be in the format "E" not "E:" or "E:\")

Func _TC_UnMount($cLetter, $iForce = 0)

    If Not StringIsAlpha($cLetter) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If Not ($iForce = 0 Or $iForce = 1) Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)

    Switch $iForce
        Case 1
            Return Not RunWait('"' & _TC_Path() & '" /s /q  /f /d' & $cLetter)
        Case 0
            Return Not RunWait('"' & _TC_Path() & '" /s /q /d' & $cLetter)
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_TC_UnMount

Try it step by step via cmd.exe, most likly it's the faulty command-line support for passwords on Windows (not all charachters are supported, if I remember right a space in the PW also busts the automount process)...

Open a cmd.exe window and start with

"C:\Program Files\TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe" /volume \Device\Harddisk1\Partition1 /letter Z /q

if this works, advance step by step.

I can get it to work in command line fine. I have been doing it in command line for a year. I just can't get it to work from Autoit.

Why are you using "" for Working Directory? Try putting either @ScriptDir for it, or the location of the file you are trying to run.

RUn(@Scriptdir & "\Mount.bat", @Scriptdir, @SW_MAXIMIZE)

RUn(@Scriptdir & "\Mount.bat", @Scriptdir & "\Mount.bat", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

both didn't work

ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\mount.bat") Worked! Thanks! But ultimately I would like to be able to do from within Autoit (without the batch file). Does anyone have any ideas on how?
