Windows 7: I can't boot into Windows. Encrypted data folders in jeopardy.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I can't boot into Windows. Encrypted data folders in jeopardy.

I do not quite know what led to this, but whenever I try to log into my Windows 7 Ultimate, I'm met with some windows boot fixer thing that is automatically launched every time, but always fails. This happens for safe mode with command prompt as well.

My issue is that I have a few folders on a different hard drive possibly using windows 7's encryption services, and I haven't recovered my key for it yet.

What can I do to take the encryption key data if I am having trouble booting into windows?
