Truecrypt – How to fix file names encoding problem

I started use truecrypt a long time ago. I used it on both Windows and Linux machines, but sometimes I had corupted file names with strange characters.

There is very simple step, how can you fix this problem.


On Linux machine

Run truecrypt, open “Settings / Preferences” window and go to the “Mount options” tab.

There is textbox named “Mount options”, put there this attribute



From this point you will have all folder/file names in UTF-8 encoding and you will no have problems with corrupted encoding anymore.
