Truecrypt Partition Broken, Help :/


Recommended Posts


following problem:

I have a Samsung Spinpoint (500gb) which is completly encrypted with truecrypt and a keyfile.

I just formatted my ssd to install win7 and - because i thought i plugged the spinpoint off - deleted all partitions listed by the windows 7 installer.

So i only hit delete, and then i saw that i just deleted the spinpoint TC partition too. I pushed the reset button in the hope that the windows installer does the operations when the installation starts, just like linux. But that was wrong... everything is gone. I just plugged the spinpoint off.

Is there any way to recover the data??

You can try testdisk.

thanks its running, and analysing the cylinders.

Will testdisk discover the partition as TC partition? Are you experienced with this tool and could you guide me? I dont want to harm the drive more...

edit: testdrive didnt find anything...
