    Hello

    Can someone point me to some direction because it works great on windows 7 however on windows 8.1, very often, especially after some updates, when I boot again I got some serious filesystem errors on every truecrypt mounted partition.

    Some time ago I figured the cause of this and found a key in regedit I could modify to ensure that windows wait for truecrypt to dismount all paritions on shutdown, however I forgot where it was :(.

    Can somebody point me there or tell me a better solution?

    I think that some update modified the key I mentioned above cause today I wasn't able to boot because of my windows partiton errors.

    Would be grateful for help.

    I sometimes experienced that delay with Truecrypt. By the way, it's outdated now. Use Veracrypt. It's a new version of Truecrypt that patches the bugs and is compatible with Truecrypt volumes. It's working great on Windows 8.

    Probably my post was a bit chaotic:

    1. My encrypted partitons got corrupted on shutdown cuz delay I written in the registry was most likely erased
    2. I don't remember how to introduce this again

    I am going to use Veracrypt I am in the middle of upgrading Win 8.1 to Win 10, but I installed updates first and after reboot all partiions got corrupted, I wasn't able to boot at all, now I am repairing my volumes under another system.

    So If you use Veracrypt your partitions doesn't get corrupted on reboot in windows ten, without modyfying the registry? I plan to have encrypted 5 partitions separately C (System), D, E, F, G. Can You please confirm this?

    And thanks for the reply, I appreciate the help.

    Sorry, I don't create encrypted partitions, just volumes. Good luck.
