Password incorrect after disconnecting hard disk while in hibernate

description

Hello,

unfortunately it happend that my external hard disc has been shut down and disconnected while my PC was in hibernate. Here is what happened in detail:

1) I decrypted my veracrypt-container (hidden volume).
2) I started veracrypt portable from the non-encrypted part of the hard disk and another portable program out of the hidden volume.
3) I switched to hibernate to save energy. (and did not shut down the program or dismount the volume)
4) The external hard disk was turned off and unplugged.
5) The PC was started again.
6) I tried to mount the veracrypt-container. Now it tells me that the password is incorrect. I also tried to use the containing backup header inside of the file.

Is there anything i can do to get these data back? Thank you in advance!


Greetings
