You could try the steps described here: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

As it erases everything on the drive, it might ignore the encryption.

Hello haseeb1431, welcome to Seven Forums!



That method doesn't erase the previous data it over-writes the data with zeroes ( 0 ) and it marks the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) as unallocated space and should solve the issue; it's not something to do to a HDD that has data you want to save on it.
