Problem: Encrypted SYSTEM Raid 0 (2 SATA m.2 drives in RAID

controller set to RAID 0) drive w VERACRYPT 1.13. Windows

problem required decryption. Upon attempt to decrypt w/RESCUE

disk and correct password , decryption begins and encounters bad

block (on one of M.2 NGFF drives in RAID 0 Array, why/how=?) and

program will not, due to read error, proceed further.
How do I handle this and/or perhaps skip or get around bad block

to decrypt what's after it?
Re-image M.2 encrupted to blank? Skip bad block somehow and

continue after (just need the data that I hope to recover off

drive after decryption) if possible? ANy advice. Will make

donation and or pay by rate for help.
Response Would BE Greatly Appreciated ::)).


FURTHER INFO AS TO PROGRESS:

It is 1 fully encrypted system drive, NTFS, consisting of 2 x

256GB M.2 NGFF drives in RAID 0 Array.
Windows would not start. Had crash.

Attempted full decryption with rescue disk and shortly after

process began it froze, and after hitting escape several times

got decryption deferred message.

Upon further examination found drive was no longer revognized as

single raid volume. One of the M.2 256gb cards had dropped out

as member of array. Furtyher insvestigation showed bad block on

it.

I got them to be recognized as a single array again on another

raid controller, and have run some tests on raw encrypted drive,

but cannot get it to decrypt.

Once it reads the bad block, decryption cannot proceed.

Can we force decryption around the bad block. I am only

interested in the data in an encrypted container within this

encrypted system drive.

Please contact me regarding possible solutions and to make

payment arrangement.
