TrueCrypt

WARNING: Using
TrueCrypt is not
secure as it may contain unfixed security issues

This page exists only to help migrate existing data encrypted by
TrueCrypt.

The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft
terminated support of Windows XP. Windows 8/7/Vista and later offer
integrated support for encrypted disks and virtual disk images.
Such integrated support is also available on other platforms (click
here for more information).
You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks
or virtual disk images supported on your platform.

Migrating
from TrueCrypt to
BitLocker:

If you have the
system drive encrypted by TrueCrypt:

  1. Decrypt the system drive (open System
    menu in TrueCrypt and select Permanently
    Decrypt
    System Drive
    ). If you want to encrypt the drive by BitLocker
    before decryption, disable Trusted Platform
    Module first and do not decrypt the drive now.
  2. Encrypt the system drive by BitLocker. Open the Explorer:

  3. Click the drive C: (or any other drive where system encryption is
    or was used) using the right mouse
    button and select Turn on BitLocker:

    If you do not see the Turn on
    BitLocker
    menu item, click here.

    Alternatively, use search in the Start
    menu or screen:

    If you do not see the BitLocker item, click here.

    If BitLocker reports Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
    unavailable error, click here.

  4. If the system drive is still encrypted by TrueCrypt, decrypt it
    now (open System
    menu in TrueCrypt and select Permanently
    Decrypt
    System Drive
    ).

If you have a
non-system drive
encrypted by TrueCrypt:

  1. If you have a spare or backup drive (having sufficient space
    to store all data you need to migrate to BitLocker), encrypt it by
    BitLocker (click the drive in Explorer using the right mouse
    button and select Turn on BitLocker):

    If you do not see the Turn on
    BitLocker
    menu item, click here.

  2. Copy all data from the drive encrypted by TrueCrypt to the drive
    encrypted by BitLocker.

    If you do not have a spare drive, first decrypt the drive encrypted by
    TrueCrypt. Select the drive in TrueCrypt, open the Volumes
    menu
    and select Permanently Decrypt
    item (available in version 7.2). Then encrypt the drive
    by BitLocker (see above).

    To mount a drive encrypted by BitLocker, open the drive in Explorer.

    To dismount a removable drive encrypted by BitLocker, use Eject menu item or Safely Remove icon:

    To dismount a non-removable drive encrypted by BitLocker, use Offline item in the context menu of
    the drive in Disk Management
    window:

    To mount the drive again, use Online
    item in the context menu of the drive.



If you have a file container encrypted by TrueCrypt:

  1. Create a new virtual disk file (VHD). Open the Computer Management window (click
    the Computer or PC icon using the right mouse
    button and select Manage):

  2. Select the Disk Management
    item:

    Alternatively, use search in the Start
    menu or screen:

  3. Open Action menu in the Disk Management window and select Create VHD:

  4. Create and attach a new virtual disk file (VHD):

  5. Initialize the new virtual drive. Click the new disk icon using
    the right mouse button and select Initialize
    Disk
    :

  6. Create a partition on the virtual drive. Click the unallocated
    space using the right mouse button and select New Simple Volume:

  7. Encrypt the new virtual drive by BitLocker. Click the drive in
    Explorer using the right mouse button and select Turn on BitLocker:

    If you do not see the Turn on
    BitLocker
    menu item, click here.

  8. Copy all data from the mounted TrueCrypt file container to the
    new virtual drive encrypted by BitLocker.

    To dismount the drive, click the drive using the right mouse button in Explorer and
    select Eject:

    To mount the drive again, double click the virtual disk file (requires
    Windows 8 or later):

    Alternatively, use Attach VHD
    in the Action menu of the Disk Management window:
