Corrupted Knoppix encrypted persistent volume

Hello. Persistent encrypted volume on Knoppix live USB is corrupted and I'm trying to get to the data.

I am trying to mount this image file via losetup command but can't get it done.

Any help is appreciated

Many thanks

I would recommend dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=myfile.img or whatever the device is under linux (see dmesg after usb drive plugged in?)
This would create an exact copy of the partition. Try to recover image with fsck...

At least it leave the encrypted disk as is?
