If you have a drive that totatly encrypted using Truecrypt and somehow the boot sector / disk header is corrupted and you can no longer mount the truecrypt volume, is it somehow possible to recover the data on the corrupt disk?
The password and algorithms used are all known but there are no backups of the headers or boot sectors. The file system used NTFS.
This is what I've been experienced so far:
The disk shows up as "Invalid" in "Computer Management" because it is / was a Dynmic drive, I changed this by editing 1C0 from 42 to 07 using a Hex-editor. Now I can see the partitions on the drive but still not mount the truecrypt partitions.
I am currently tryign to run TestDisk to recover the boot sector because it shows up as "Bad" in TestDisk.
Any other ideas or pointers? If TestDisk is unable to recover the drive headers, is there someway that data can be recoverd when you know the Password and Encryption algorithms?
Just to clearify, it's not a bootable system drive that is corrupt. But according to TestDisk:
A valid NTFS Boot sector must be present in order to access any data; even if the partition is not bootable
