    Hi all! I really hope that I am in the right part of the forum here.

    I have the following problem: I tried encrypting my laptop yesterday, but while DiskCryptor was running, said laptop crashed. When I turned it on again, it attempted to repair itself, which it wasn’t able to do. I was given the options to enter the BIOS, use an image or clear the PC instead, amongst others, but the latter didn’t even work, presumably because of the encryption that hadn’t been completed. Is there any way of decrypting the drive or solving the issue in some other way without Windows having to be able to start up?

    Thanks!
