Apologies but what do you mean by "validating the key"?
If ever I will perform "Force Crypt Sectors" to force decrypt the drive, correct me if I'm wrong as for the start sector base on the image I will use 2048? and number of sectors should I use 468856832?
Is this the correct info to input in performing force decrypt?
you need to check you have the right key by test decrypting something in the workspace and making sure it decrypts correctly.
yes, the start is 2048, but the other number is the sector count not the end sector. You need to do the math (count+start -1 etc)
