Tips on Changing an Encrypted Volume Password
If you have encrypted volumes (BitLocker, TrueCrypt, etc.), before you attempt to change the password on it, be sure to make a copy first. I had a bad experience changing an encrypted volume. After I changed the password, I can no longer open it. I must have typed in the password incorrectly (twice!!!). No matter what mutation of the password I tried, it would not open. Luckily, I had a back up of the encrypted volume, so I was able to recover my data.
Make your password change on a copy of the volume, then immediately try to open it with the new password. If it works, then you can safely delete the extra copy. But if it doesn't open, then you can always delete the failed copy and repeat the process.
