EPO Decryption Guidelines

Hey people,

My hard disk has been corrupted and i need to take data's by connecting it as secondary HDD. But since my Harddisk is encryted by mcafee epo  I couldnt perform this. Can anyone help me out on how to decrypt this harddisk in boot itself.

Thank you in advance.

If system has CD/USB drive you can usually try and recover in place, no need to move to another drive as secondary.

Note, this will take ages, so be prepared that the system will need to be plugged in for a few hours at the very least. I think the last drive I decrypted this was took 5 hours or so.
