The machine is running XP with a SATA drive with 1 hard drive with 2 partitions. Having a hard time trying to mount the hard drive in order for me to gain access to the files.
Any help is appreciated, if there is any other posts related to this please point me in the right direction.
I doubt there's anything that Linux can do to help you with this. That's an encrypted file system, so without the decryption key, you're done.
While you may be able to mount the raw disk, you'd be reading encrypted blocks of data, and still need the key.
