i was encrypting a 3.5TB Seagate Expansion Drive with diskcryptor, it didnt crash or anything and i confirmed many times the data is still there even tho the encryption is paused at 65% .
Now the drive seems to be failing, i think the case is fried or something..
I took the drive out of its case and connected internally to pc and... there is different data there !!
When i connect with case i see 3 partitions 2 small and one correct large, it is possible to mount the drive with correct password via DC but then explorer hangs when trying to access drive.
However when the drive is connected internally i see one 350 GB partition and 2 big partitions.. Also DC returns "Error : 4" - incorrect password - well not a surprise since its not the correct partition !!
Is there some protection / something that the drive can only be connected thru the casing ?!
How can i backup the data ? Would it help putting the drive in a different casing ?
