    I have a Windows 7 laptop that is encrypted with Truecrypt. Will no longer boot into Windows.

    I want to decrypt so that I can fix booting issue.

    I don't have a rescue disk.

    Reading posts on this site - it sounds like there is a copy of .iso of rescue disk on my encrypted drive. I took drive out of laptop and have it connected to another computer. I can access the "C:" drive on the encrypted partition but can't find any .iso file.

    Any help?

    Hopefully you will find the file you need within the "user's default documents folder". Default positioning will only apply if YOU did not change the path when you performed the encryption process.

    e.g. - many users decide to copy their TC rescue image to the desktop so it is staring at them to assist in the burn of the disc. Did you do that? For now when you have the OS open on the second computer go to your user and then its document folder. If you find the image copy it out to a flash and then burn it to an Optical disc if you have a computer that uses one. Alternatively you can create a bootable usb flash and perform the needed functions using that instead of an optical disc. The disc is much easier for new users.

    Good luck.
