I wiped my 1TB Samsung 850 Evo SSD and I just used veracrypt to perform full disk encryption with it. I have another HDD drive as well that I've done this with.
The HDD is sdb, and the EVO is sdc. The results look like the following.
For some reason there are 2 created partitions for the Samsung SSD. When I want to mount sdb I use the command
sudo veracrypt --mount /dev/sdb1, but when I want to mount sdc, I omit the drive letter and use the command
sudo veracrypt --mount /dev/sdc, and the drive is mounted successfully. The df command even recognizes the veracrypt mount as having its full 1Tb of space.
So why am I seeing 2 very large partitions created for this device?
