I had XP installed on my laptop with EEPC 6 Patch2. I had 2 drives, C(System) and D(Data). I installed Windows 7 on C and forget to decrypt D before installation L. After this, the volume D is shown as empty and clicking on D throwing this message "Drive not formatted. Do you want to format it now?". They have installed the Endpoint Encryption software again. But this does not help. Now they are saying the data cannot be recovered.
Do I have any options to recover the data on my D ?
Any help will be appreciated.
Using EETech tools you should be able to detect information and status of encrypted disk.
It should be also possible to decrypt it, once proper system is identified.
Always try to use Crypt Sectors without Force. (If disk information is still intact and shows proper encryption sector ranges).
the decrypt with Crypt Sector doesn't work, i have always do you want to format the D.
Do you recommand another workaround ?
it's impossible for it not to work if you have the right machine export - remember, you need to decrypt it with the machine details from the time it was encrypted, not now - the new install will have different keys.
Again, there's no reason why you can't get the data back as long as you use the right keys.
The key is different because the EEPC was installed again in the new windows 7 Systems.
how to do to find the last key ? or do have another solution ?
your IT team could find it in an EEM backup, or there may be more than one entry in EEM for your machine? If they have deleted the original, of course the only place they are going to find it is in a database backup.
Peruse EEM database and find older object, that contains proper key for D partition.
Normally machine names or object ID's can give you some clues. Always perform workspace decryption test, to see if key matches encrypted data.
