Get the Volume labels all bitlocker volumes had before being encrypted

sudo echo "BitLocker Volume labels:" && sudo dislocker-find | xargs -I{} sh -c 'echo -n "{} ->+ " ; sudo dislocker-metadata -V {} | grep string' | sed 's/+.*string://' | sed "s/'[^ ]* /\"/g" | sed 's/\ [^ ]*$/"/'
Get information of volume labels of bitlocker volumes, even if they are encrypted and locked (no access to filesystem, no password provided). Note that the volume labels can have spaces, but only if you name then before encryption. Renaming a bitlocker partition after being encrypted does not have the same effect as doing it before.
Sample Output
BitLocker Volume labels:
/dev/nvme0n1p3 -> "OS_Install"
/dev/sda1 -> "DATA"
/dev/sdb1 -> "MY PEN"

  • This should automatically mount it to /media/truecrypt1. Further mounts will go to /media/truecrypt2, and so on. You shouldn't need sudo/su if your permissions are right. I alias tru='truecrypt' since tr and true are commands. To explicitly create a mount point do: tru /media/foo To make sure an GUI explorer window (nautilus, et al) opens on the mounted volume, add: --explorer To see what you currently have mounted do: tru -l To dismount a volume do: tru -d To dismount all mounted volumes at once do: tru -d Tested with Truecrypt v6.3a / Ubuntu 9.10

  • With this command, you can check the difference between the volumes mounted and the volume in /etc/fstab.

    diff <(cat /etc/fstab | grep vol | grep -v "^#" | awk '{print $1}') <(df -h | grep vol)

  • The lspv command displays the information about the physical volume if the specific physical volume name is specified. If you do not add flags to the lspv command, by default all the available physical volumes are printed along with the following information: * Physical disk name. * Physical volume identifiers (PVIDs). * The volume group, if any, that the physical volume belongs to or the label,if any, locked with the lkdev command. * The state of the volume group. Active-When the volume group is varied on. Concurrent-When the volume group is varied on in the concurrent mode. Locked-When the physical volume is locked with the lkdev command. **************************************************************************************** In the example, the iw406 system has two hard disks. Phy disk name Phy vol identfrs (PVIDs) volume group State of Volumne group hdisk0 00f6267c8a99c7b6 rootvg active hdisk1 00f6267cb3746d01 appinstvg active hdisk0 is mounted on volume group rootvg. hdisk1 is mounted on volume group appinstvg Show Sample Output

  • To make it even more practical, make sure you can login to the ssh server using a keypair.

    mkdir /Volumes/sshdisk 2> /dev/null; sshfs user@server:/ /Volumes/sshdisk -oreconnect,volname=SSHDisk
