Crashes on Windows 10

Topics: Technical Issues

I installed Veracrypt version 1.19 on my windows 10 machine. I managed to create a 20G encrypted drive in a .hc file. However now I get intermittent blue screens. The guide gives this advice.

"If the problem persists, run VeraCrypt and select Help > 'Analyze a System Crash' shortly after the system crashes or restarts."

However if I go into Help there is no Analyze a System Crash option? If I uninstall VeraCrypt the blue screens stop.

Hello Emmet,

Did you check the Windows Event Viewer for crash information as to what software driver caused the issue?

You can try this tool to view the dumps. However, I am not sure if this tool will work for Windows 10.

MS has DaRT 10 that one of the components is a crash analyzer.

In case there is an incompatibility with your AntiVirus software, try disable or deinstall the AV to see if BSOD have stopped.

PS: VeraCrypt 1.20 Beta 2 is stable if you wish try that option.
