Windows 7: Auto unlock encrypted drive fails after image restore

Auto unlock encrypted drive fails after image restore


I have been testing now for a couple of weeks and finally have found a solution, after an image restore to the C drive only - all other internally encrypted drives and partitions fail to automatically unlock. The error is "Data error (cyclic redundancy check)." There are actually two ways to avoid this issue, the first is a clean install of Windows which of course means re-installing your software and modifying all of your settings; the second and much better solution to avoiding this problem is to turn off automatic unlocking before creating the system image.

The issue involves Windows system image backup software and Windows BitLocker, it does not effect externally connected USB HDDs.
