Un-encrypt secondary drive

Hi everyone, I need a little help on how to recover data on a drive that was previously encrypted with McAfee DE.  The drive in question was the primary drive on one of my workstations and was encrypted using McAfee DE 7.2.8.  During a poweroutage in my building the OS on the drive became corrupted and was never able to boot back into windows.  I built another drive to recovery the workstation, installed windows and deployed Mcafee DE to the new drive.  I have since added the failed drive into the system as a secondary harddrive which shows up in ePO as a unsupported drive.  I'm trying to figure out how can I decrypt the drive so I can get the data off of it.  I was looking into the using the DETech recovery tool, but wanted to verify if this is the best course of action to recovery the data.  Also, the workstation has the same name as the failed and I can export the old keys which I'm assuming are from the drive I'm trying to recovery.

Any help would be graciously appreciated.  Thanks
