USB drive repair with McAfee Removable Media Protection

My company requires that USB drives used in our system be encrypted with McAfee Removable Media Protection. I encrypted a 1TB USB drive and it seemed to work but then I removed the drive tried to use it in another machine where it would not load, and then plugged it into the machine where I encrypted it and would not load. 

Is there a way to repair or decrypt the drive?

When I insert the drive it does not auto load and ask for a password. When I open that drive I do not see the files I had on it but a couple McAfee files and a McAfee Removable Media directory. 

When I look at properties of the drive I see 962GB used space even though the visible files it shows does not add up to 6 MB.
