Windows 7 dual boot (x86 / x64) and BitLocker encryption failure after
I have an issue which I need resolved. My hard drive had about 5 different partitions, one for Windows 7 x86, Windows 7 x64, Misc, Encrypted Data and Virtual Machines.
The Encrypted Data partition was secured with BitLocker - The OS-partitions was _not_ secured with BitLocker.
Now what happened was that I had to run the startup repair utility on my Windows 7 x64 installation and this completely messed up things for me.
I have lost the Encrypted Data and Virtual Machine-partition. I do not care about the VMs, but the Data contains vital information which I have not backed up yet.
Ontop of losing the two partitions, a new partition called HP_tools re-appeared. This partition was removed when I scratched the OEM-installation approx. a year ago.
I urgently need to recover this Data-partition. Can anyone help?
Additional information: I do have unallocated space (between other partitions) on my hard drive, but none at the exact size of my encrypted partition.
