    Windows 7 recovery




      My work laptop has decided to stop booting Windows 7 normally. Instead it goes in to System Recovery options but it won't repair itself and there's no previous recovery points to revert to.


      It has McAfee Drive Encryption and I know the username/password but it just always boots into System Recovery. I tried booting win10 from a usb stick but that doesn't show the McAfee encryption login and so I can't view my encrypted drive.


      Trying to get into safe mode with F8 isn't working and I've tried lots!


      My IT Support department say I need to re-image the machine and I'll lose all my documents. I really don't want to lose my documents and suspect they're just being lazy/efficient.


      Is there anyway I can either recover Windows or recover my documents before they wipe it?
