Using the latest build (1.1.846.118), I've still had a bit of trouble with Windows 8, documented here: https://diskcryptor.net/forum/index.php?topic=4856.0

Note that I used the same password for both boot and system partitions, and also tried with a non-encrypted boot partition (only system). Both resulted in a black screen of death, as noted in the other thread. Using Windows 8 (not 8.1) on a MBR-partitioned disk.

I'm still unable to get this .846 version to work. With the new quick update, I still have problem trying to encrypt C: and data partitiions.  If I click encrypt, enter a password, etc. then I get an error dialogue box saying:

Error start encrypt volume/
[\\?\Volume{...}]
Error code: 15

Can anyone help me understand why this does not work with Windows 8.1 and what Error code 15 means??

Thanks ntldr. I got it working perfectly on Windows 8 (encrypted main + boot). Very good :)

Latest DiskCryptor with Win7PE works great with SATA drives on my two WIN7 X64 boxes.

Thanks much.

@lolstorm

Don't know the precise nature of your problem but please note that because of security risks inherent in hibernation and memory dumps, DiskCryptor blocks these processes in some instances. In particular see https://diskcryptor.net/wiki/CryptoUsageRisks#Software-induced_data_leaks (2nd indented bullet following 3rd full paragraph) which states:

If the system partition is not encrypted, and when there are mounted encrypted disks present in the system, then the use of hibernation mode and saving of memory dump (on system crash) are blocked [by DiskCryptor], and in case if there are no mounted encrypted disks present, then before commencing hibernation or writing memory dump, the password cache is being automatically cleared from memory.

See cited wiki section for additional info. Hope this helps.

Regards.

Is DiskCryptor going to support UEFI bios or secure boot any time soon? I have mentioned about DiskCryptor to many people and some people have killed their systems with it due to their system being on UEFI :( It gives DiskCryptor a really bad name because they go away and start telling people how DiskCryptor ruined their whole system.

Before UEFI is resolved, a portable version of Diskcryptor could help people to fix their computers.

With a portable release, somebody should be able to drop a folder onto a stick containing a WinPE, and then start running Diskcryptor from the stick.

You don't need great skills to have a WinPE.  Macrium Reflect Free Edition, and possibly some other good applications can make a WinPE for the average user.

The hard part is getting Diskcryptor working on it.  Disckryptor drivers need to be registered, and they need to be loaded during the loading of Windows.   In other words, Diskcryptor is not portable.

My method of building a Diskcryptor WinPE is to graft Diskcryptor onto a Macrium WinPE.

Another post of mine somewhere explains how to do it.  If Diskcryptor were portable, the grafting should be as easy as dragging and dropping a folder.

Instead, the grafting involves extracting a Windows image, then inserting Diskcryptor files into the extracted folders, then changing a registry file from the image, and then compressing the extracted stuff back into a new Windows image.  The Windows image is an archive file containing most of the files for a very light version of Windows, called a WinPE.

On a Macrium rescue drive, the Windows image is named boot.wim, and it is by far the largest file on the drive.

UEFI is a security risk, so I hope not. Also, not supporting it doesn't give DC a "bad name", quite the opposite (at least with people who are "security-aware").
But (like I've wrote in my "petition"), information about that "limitation" should be posted on main, download page for all to see.

I am a techie and I could not even make one.
I made couple of them:
  • one with Win XP and BartPE - easy,
  • one with Win 7PE SE ("small", and "standard") - a bit tougher, and much longer, but still not a "rocket science".
So maybe your "techines", is not as good as you think ?

I would love to read your reason why you say UEFI is a security risk....
