In a separate post regarding the security level of "WD My Passport 2TB" external hard drive's built-in password encryption, Tom Leek answered in incredible detail that left the enquirer of the sensible and cautious opinion that he should add a 2nd level of encryption using software (he mentioned Truecrypt). I have just tried the same thing using the successor of Truecrypt being Veracrypt but am having severe problems in use. The file container created successfully and my data copied into the folder seamlessly. However, whenever I try to save a file from within Word it hangs any programs that are trying to access that double-encrypted drive and even Windows 7 Task Manager can't close the programs so I have to force a shutdown that risks corrupting data. Does anyone know what could be wrong here please e.g. should this 2nd level not work with "WD My Passport" drives & Veracrypt?
Many thanks for any help.
