Hi,

I have had the longest night trying to recover my encrypted drive, with the only set of my most important documents. I'm inbetween a rock and a hard place, not being able to work, or take care of extremely critical tasks. I know - was going to run a new backup in just 2 days from now...

Here's what happened:
  1. I could not load Windows 10 and tried to run Startup Recovery, which stalled and rebooted
  2. Used Paragon Recovery Tools and unfortunately chose REBUILD MBR FOR ALL DRIVES !!!
  3. Having corrupted the encrypted drived by creating an MBR on it I deleted the partition
  4. As I could still not mount the encrypted drive I ran DISKPART and CLEAN on it
I check "Use backup header embedded in volume, if availble", but it fails to mount.

I would be most grateful for any advice on what to do, as I'm a newbie to encryption.

Kindly,
Kaliya
