I'm having a scary problem after intalling and using TrueCrypt on my Mac on top of BoxCryptor. I've been using BoxCryptor for a while and am loving it, but when I now try to mount a disk my Mac crashes in a way it never has before.
I had just run TrueCrypt and BoxCryptor simultaneously after installing TrueCrypt, moving files from a BC virtual drive to a TC virtual drive.
I don't remember what I tried to do next, but I got an error message saying that there was a runtime error in the OSXFUSE library, or something like that.
I used the most current version of TrueCrypt for the Mac (got it tonight).
I restarted the computer...no help.
I marked the TrueCrypt preferences not to enable the background task it runs in case that was a conflict and restarted the computer...no help.
I had earlier unmarked the preference in BC to automtically start the program. I'm glad I did this because I read here that another user had to wipe his Mac and start over with a complete reinstall because the automatic start for BC made the crash prevent the Mac booting up to completion.
I considered reinstalling BC and seeing if that fixed the problem. However, to do that with reassurance, I need to know if the auto-start up box is marked by default in new installations. That could be a mess if the problem wasn't solved by a new installation. That would be a disaster for me.
Thank goodness I do have cloned backups via Carbon Copy Cloner.
1) I'm guessing that TrueCrypt replaced some files in that library with ones that won't work with BoxCryptor. Does BC install oxsfuse files when it is installed? Would that write over the problematic ones? Apparently that's what TC did when it replaced what I already had.
2) Is auto start the default setting for the program? Will I take a big risk to reinstall it on my machine?
Sorry for this long post, but I've got to get this right.
