Mount Truecrypt volume without Truecrypt

Some of you may have some old Truecrypt volumes lying around. Truecrypt was a nice and handy utility which is not developed anymore, unfortunately. But you still can mount the volumes created by it.

One way to do it on Ubuntu:

  • sudo cryptsetup tcryptOpen myvol.tc myvol

Where:

  • myvol.tc – the file name of your volume
  • myvol – arbitrary name of the virtual disk to be created

You will be asked for a passphrase, and if you still can remember it, the volume will be mounted under /dev/mapper with the name you provided and will show up as just another disk.
