I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post, so if not please let me know where is better so I can repost of appropriate. 1. My troubles started after I stupidly transported my laptop in the boot of my car. I'm presuming that the Hard drive has sustained some sort of damage. My entire hard drive is encrypted using TruCrypt, including the OS (Whole of disk encryption). 2. My TruCrypt password no longer works now. When I type in the correct password, it fails to authenticate as though I have typed in the wrong password. 3. I have managed to bypass password authentication by using the TruCrypt rescue disk, however once the hard drive boots, instead of loading Windows, Windows startup repair loads. 4. Startup repair fails to fix the problem and there are no system restore points. 5. I cannot seem to decrypt the volume using the rescue disk without the password which is still not working, despite me being 100% confident that I am using the correct password. Can anyone help me? I need the data from the volume and I'm stuck for ideas.
