encrypted C drive windows unable to boot

Post by jeloeno »

Hi,

I really got messed up by my own laptop. I Installed diskcryptor and started encrypting my C: drive. Just after it was done encrypting my laptop just went out. I tried booting up but windows goes into automatic recovery mode and i can't do anything. Even trying te reset windows isn't working, because it gives an error at the beginning of the process. I see no way to boot my windows. Does anyone have an idea if it's possible to fix this? Currently running windows 11 en the only thing i did thus far is installing diskcryptor and instantly encrypting my C: drive.

Hi,

I have just done the exact same thing and now I'm panicking.

Did you manage to fix this issue?

Thanks

You need to create a boot disk with windows to go on it and than you can install dc into that and decrypt your partition
you can use rufus to create such a boot disk
