Solution



Download the Drive Encryption recovery files for the version of your Symantec Encryption Desktop\Symantec Drive Encryption. The files are included in the compressed file below.  Note that the files work only with the version of Symantec Encryption Desktop that is installed on the system. Using a USB drive to recover a drive is limited to Windows 8 computers.

 

Warning: When performing disk recovery, please confirm you are using the correct files for your version.

Caution: Once you have started to decrypt a disk or partition using a USB drive for recovery, do not stop the decryption process.  The time to decrypt a disk depends on the size of the disk and the decryption process may take a considerable amount of time.  A faster way to decrypt the drive is to use another system that has the same version of Encryption Desktop installed on it.
