PGP WDE - Restore MBR or get data from an encrypted disk
I am running Windows 7 64 bit on a Thinkpad T420. I booted the machine a few days ago, got the PGP page and entered my password. That worked fine, however Windows did not boot up properly and I got the Windows recovery screen with about 5 recovery options ranging from repairing the system, restoring an image or opening a command prompt.
I opened the command window and entered "bootrec /fixmbr". This may not have been wise. Because when I rebooted I got a"missing operating system" error message. I did not even get as far as the PGP screen.
Reading the forum it looks like PGP WDE replaces the Win7 MBR with its own, and using windows to the "fix" the MBR replaces the PGP MBR with its own.
Ultimately I just want to access the disk and copy my data files off it.
Has anyone experience of this problem ? and a fix for it ?
Thanks and best regards, Paul.
