Accessing encrypted windows hard drive with live CD
A friend of mine has a windows laptop that will not boot. He needs to get files off of it and I said you could do that with a Linux live CD. However, I tried it and it didn't mount the hard drive automatically. My feeble attempts at mounting it proved fruitless. My friend then mentioned.. "Does it matter if the drive is encrypted?" I'm not an expert, but I think it does.
Is there a way I can access that drive to get his files off? The encryption software still works. It asks for a password and un-encrypts it at boot up. However, the boot process fails when windows tries to boot up. The name of the encryption software he is using is called Encryption Plus, if that helps.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you...
