I started to configure my new 32 GB storage follwing the instructions given via /start.
After the initial setup - during which I had to format a 27 GB partition, and which resulted in 2 drives, one with 2 GB and a second one with 27 GB - I proceeded with the instructions given in the FAQ at https://www.nitrokey.com/documentation/applications#a:encrypted-mobile-storage. So I started to setup the hidden volume by using the setup window, starting at 20%, ending at 90%. After some seconds, I got the message that setup is done.
When I now try to use the hidden volume, I first unlock the encrypted volume, which results in showing both drives, the 2 GB and the 27 GB one. When I try to unlock the hidden volume, a pop-up windows says that I am about to lock my encrypted volume and have to eject the encrypted volume first. When I proceed, I get the message that I have to format my 27 gb drive.
Does someone know what is going wrong here? Did I anything wrong in the sequence? Or did I miss something?
As far as I understand the process, I initially have on my 32 gb drive
(1) a 1,99 GB partition
(2) an encrypted partition with 27 GB
Then, I set the hidden volume up wihtin the encrypted 27 GB partition. Right?
But what could happen that results in me not being able to open the hidden volume?
When I use the storage on another PC, I can’t see the hidden volume. So far everything seems to be OK (I can see it as unformatted device only). But why am I asked to format the hidden volume every time I press the unlock hidden volume link in the nitro key app?
Help is much appreciated - Thanks!
