I cleaned my Samsung 850 Evo 1TB SSD and only used veracrypt to complete the disk encryption with it. I also have another hard drive with which I have done this.
The HDD is sdb, and the EVO is sdc. The results resemble the following.
For some reason, there are 2 partitions created 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 unit is assembled successfully. The df command even recognizes that the mount veracrypt has its total 1 TB of space.
So, why do I see 2 very large partitions created for this device?
