Iomega external hard drive recovery - with truecrypt encryption
Hello Experts. I have an Iomega 500GB external hard drive which is partitioned into 2 partitions. The first approx 75gb and the second 390gb. the 390 GB partion was further encrypted with true crypt so that when I plug it in, windows sees it as an unformatted drive. I mount it using the truecrypt program and my password. Today, I had the drive plugged in while booting linux. I noticed that mint was running disk check for a long time and cancelled it. Right after that I cant access my hard drive. When I plug in , I can see the unencrypted partiion for a short while but cant copy my data off. Further I cant mount the truecrypt partition and get the error that the drive has a physical defect not related to truecrypt. Unfortunately I have no recent backup of the encrypted partition. One more thing. the drive makes a noise like one of those old internal hard drives. normally this drive is quiet. Can any one help?
