Have a laptop with Windows 7. The HD is encrypted with Dell Data protection Personal Edition.
Suddenly I cannot boot into Window anymore. It starts Windows but stops before the login screen comes up. I am left with a black screen with a mouse pointer that I can move but nothing else.
This happens in safe mode as well. Not sure what I can do besides try to repair Windows.
My question is what happens to the data after reinstalling Windows. Will the encryption software still work or will I lose all my data. Perhaps there a way to decrypt the drive using some sort of a rescue disk before repairing Windows?
