Help! I created a hidden partition within a harddrive encrypted using truecrypt, and instead of creating a second partition, it seems to have deleted all of my data instead. what did i do wrong? I simply followed the instructions on creating a hidden partition. my only mistake was using the same password as the outer partition. however, it still should have opened the normal partition, since truecrypt tries to open that first, but all im getting is an empty harddrive. it had some data on it that i would rather not lose.

how can i delete the partition, or at least make truecrypt see the top partition, instead of going to the hidden partition?

edit: i changed the password to the outer partition, but the harddrive is still empty. i can access the innerhidden partition with the old password, but it is not formatted
