Data recovery Tags: Hard Drives Data Recovery Storage Last response: May 17, 2011 8:08 PM in Storage Share nvcn May 17, 2011 6:45:41 AM Hey guys, So last night I was encrypting one of my storage HDs with True Crypt and during the process my computer shut down. Blue screen of death when I tried to boot up Reformated my C drive Reinstalled windows on C drive Now on my other drive that was unmounted during the true crypt process I am looking for a way to recover some of the files that were on there. Windows won't let me access it with out formating it but of course that doesn't help me. Are there any software recommendations anyone could give me to solve this problem? I have some documents that are important to me that i would like to get before reformatting this drive. Any help is appreciated greatly More about : data recovery | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove COLGeek May 17, 2011 2:16:06 PM Is the second HDD encrypted or not? If not, try this free app: www.piriform.com/recuva Please clarify and good luck! | Report abuse nvcn May 17, 2011 5:07:39 PM Thanks for the response. I'm not really sure if its encrypted. If it is it is only partially (if thats even possible) Its actually 2 HDD in RAID 1 (ironic) that are on F:/ but the disk is unmounted I tried recuva but since I can't even access F:/ I couldn't get it to focus on that area, I will mess around with it some more This is a SS of what my disk management page looks like if this helps with showing the problem more clearly | Report abuse COLGeek May 17, 2011 5:17:35 PM What make/model of motherboard are you using? There is a chance that all you have to do is restore/repair/rebuild your RAID to recover your files. | Report abuse Related ressources RAID 5 Data Recovery / Only have the Drives - Forum Data recovery ,CRC trouble shooting and disk drive cloning related - Forum External HDD data recovery - Forum Data recovery from overwritten/replaced file - Forum Data recovery from 3TB hard drive - Forum Ask the community Publish nvcn May 17, 2011 5:27:07 PM Asus Striker II Formula | Report abuse COLGeek May 17, 2011 5:30:22 PM nvcn said:Asus Striker II Formula I should have guessed.....seem to be an inordinate number of threads, on several forum sites (including Microsoft's) regarding these mobos and RAIDs.

I assume you are running Win 7 x64. If not, get the latest and install for your flavor of Windows.
