I have an Acer Aspire 5742 with Windows 7 64, with full-disk encryption. I no longer have access to the truecrypt rescue disk. When I boot, the truecrypt screen comes up, and I can correctly enter the password. But it can't boot Windows, and so it takes me to the System restore utilities. It finds no OS, and no backups, and I can't check the disk. I downloaded SystemRescueCD and I am running Testdisk. My concern is that Testdisk will not be able to really work unless I can decrypt the drive. Is that right? So, my question: I have heard here and there that, using a LiveCD that has truecrypt, I could mount the encrypted drive, supply the password, and then maybe decrypt it. Is this right? Also, where might I find such a LiveCD? I've been using my USB stick to boot SystemRescueCD, so I was hoping I could similarly boot the relevant LiveCD from by 8gb usb stick. Any help here would be much appreciated. Essentially, at this point, I'm trying to decide if anything is salvageable, or if I just need to reformat.
