Can't mount other drives after decrypting system drive

I had encrypted whole system drive + two other drives (both marked as system favorite). Today after logging I realized, that I am not sure, if I know the password anymore (I had it in my hand, but not head), so then I was unsuccessfully trying my password through "Change password..." function. Because of that I kinda paniced and pernamently decrypted my system drive and then had to restart my computer.

Meanwhile I was almost sure that I have found out what the password is, but when I am trying to mount the other two drives, sign "Incorrect password or not a VeraCrypt volume" always pops up. Am I just putting wrong password or did I somehow block the other two drives because of permanently decrypting system drive?

Thank you very much for any help.

Hello jigsaw,

Decrypting the system drive will have no impact on the other two drive's encryption.
