    Hi,

    Okay... I have a problem that I created for my self. I created a very large container on my hard drive - 4TB in size. This container was sitting in a Software (Windows) RAID 1 between two 4TB drives. I deleted the volume in Computer Management on accident. Because of this - I'm trying to recover my data. I have run TestDisk and created an image (.dd) file of the drive. I have opened the file (.dd) with WinHex and I see encrypted data. But I have no idea what to do now. And I don't want to risk damaging it. Could someone point me in the right direction.

    Thank you so much!

    Update: Using a WinHex- I can see the partitions, (hidden and not hidden). I Copied the partition out to a file. I tried monting the file with the hidden password but it failed.

    Update: Okay- So I can see there is data within the file I created with WinHex. It looks like I need to recover the header file so I can see the information in the hidden volume. How do I do that? I've tried using Test Crypt on the actual drive but it hasn't found anything yet :(
