WDE Recovery holding at 0%
I have an issue with the decryption of a 500GB disk, which had contained 4 partitions, 2 of them WDE encrypted. One of the encrypted partitions was no longer needed, and one of the existing ones would be expanded to take up the space (all would end up unencrypted). I decrypted the partition I was planning to expand via the Windows frontend. The other encrypted partition, I foolishly just deleted. I now found that the drive was still instrumented, and I was unable to uninstrument it via the command line as the drive still showed as encrypted.
I decided to resort to the recovery disk (again, perhaps not the best plan). I chose to decrypt, and now it has been running for ~3 days, HD going 100%, but showing that the disk is '0% encypted' ever since it started. I have done an proper recovery decrypt on an identical disk before, and it did work, albeit taking well over a week, but at least then it started at 100% and I could see the countdown. Is this decryption process going to take just as long, is it going to work at all, or is there something I can do to just cut my losses? Please keep in mind that the data on the disk is of no consequence.
