How to determine file system of TrueCrypt volume?

by Allen   Last Updated January 13, 2018 15:01 PM

If a volume file is created by TrueCrypt, how do we determine what is the file system that volume is formatted? Because if the file created from Linux, it can be ext3, if Windows, NTFS, but also FAT32. How do I determine the file system?

In Windows, mount the virtual container on a drive letter. Make sure you have decrypted it. Then, go to My Computer, right-click on this newly mounted volume & click properties. Here, you can see what type of File System is being used.

In Linux, mount the virtual container on a mount point. Make sure you have decrypted it. Then, use following command in terminal:
df -T
Next to your mount point, you can see what type of File System is being used.
