I'm facing an issue with Veracrypt upon rebooting the device. Why & what can I do?

New member | Level 2

Hi, I installed Veracrypt and encrypted my system drive, restarted, entered the password and it worked fine. I then used the custom message during boot so I only see a custom text. After entering the password and pressing Enter, nothing happens. I decrypted the entire drive with the rescue disc, it took 3 days and finished successfully. When I try to boot from the drive, it is still showing the custom message with no ability to do anything. Entering the password does not work, pressing ESC does not work. Using the rescue disc to " Boot without pre-boot authentication" does not work (it stays on Booting... indefinitely). Any advice? Mike.

Re: Veracrypt - Anybody?

Hey @katz11I’m here to help if I can!  
Can you elaborate a bit on how Dropbox comes into play in your current configuration for me please? 
Once I have a look on how that’s affecting any Dropbox-related functionality/performance, I’ll try to focus on that a bit closer. Thanks again!
