While Apple’s latest Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is a really interesting update, there are still many kinks to be smoothed out and for folks like me who dived right in, you might that find some things don’t “just work” anymore. I found out the painful way that TrueCrypt wasn’t able to mount my encrypted volume anymore. This wasn’t too big an issue as I could mount the volume on my Windows machine, but it’s worth noting that there is a solution to this.
It’s worth noting that I’m not sure if the steps below did it for me, or the fact that I uninstalled NTFS-3G, but either way, now you know there are two things I did. Aside from removing NTFS-3G, I did the following:
- Download and install TrueCrypt 7.0a for Mac
- Download and install this version of MacFuse. If you haven’t upgraded to Lion yet, you might want to remove MacFuse before updating as I had issues uninstalling it after updating to Lion.
- Reboot (some folks say this isn’t necessary)
With the instructions above, I managed to get TrueCrypt working again, and hope it works for you too!
Update 17th Feb 2014: I’ve just got a new MacBook Pro with Mavericks preinstalled, and used the steps above but installed TrueCrypt 7.1a and MacFUSE 2.0.3. Works like a charm.
