USB encrypted disk damaged (RAW)

Post by valdalva »


I have a WD 2TB USB drive encrypted with DiskCryptor which was improrperly ejected and hence damaged. The disk is read now as RAW instead of NTFS. The DiskCryptor header is not damaged so it can be mounted.

I tried to fix using TestDisk but it does not work on encrypted disks, they recommended to firts decrypt and then use TestDisk.

Is it possible to fix? if so, could you provide any recommendations on the process to follow?

Any help will be truly appreciated.


PS sorry, I just realized this post should go to Troubleshooing instead of Discussions.
