How to fix ? Veracrypt “BootLoader requires 32kb of free space”

Share

Hey, last time I had problem with this error so I will show you today how to fix this, so you’ll be able to encrypt your partition without any problems. We need to shrink main partition because VeraCrypt require this to store “bootloader” at the begging of the partition, VeraCrypt BootLoader is stored at the beginning of the partition.

We will use free version of “MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 10” which is completely OK to do this task.

After installing MiniTool Partition Wizard we need to select disk which we want to encrypt (windows partition in my case).

Select your partition and choose “Move/Resize Partition

then just leave some empty space at the beginning of the partition (Unallocated Space Before), leave let say 8 MB šŸ™‚ it should be ok, because VeraCrypt requires only 32 KB for BootLoader, but we will leave more space šŸ˜‰

Click ok, and Apply Changes.

now you should be ready to encrypt your whole disk with VeraCrypt without problems.

You can download MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition from – https://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html
