    I have a serious problem with my hard-drive and truecrypt.
    I have Windows Vista (full system drive encrypted) and truecrypt 5.1.
    No problem but today i had a crash !
    I have blue screen for all windows boot menu : safe mode, last good...
    because of sectors corrupted.

    I can't do a chkdsk /f because i don't have a command prompt.
    So i try to decrypt my drive (with F8 truecrypt menu).
    But at 50% truecrypt stopped because of sectors corruption !!

    I plugged this hard drive on usb to another PC with windows and truecrypt.
    When i try to moun with pre-boot authentification, i had a message :
    "Error : the process of encryption of the partition/drive has not been completed. It must be completed first".

    But i can't to completed because of sectors corruption.
    All my life is in this drive and my backup was format for a linux distribution yesterday (damned !).

    The solution will by to do a chkdsk /f just after the authentification at the boot, but all windows menu boot crash...

    Please help me. All my life is in this hard drive ! Please !:'(

    Welcome Jfchadeyron!

    This discussion make's it appear possible. Systemrescue or rip may be the distro's to boot.
    Should you remain as unsure as myself, I'd suggest posting on the truecrypt forum.
