It does not work either. When I am trying to recover some of my files it shows me nothing. Actually I only had one bestcrypt volume inside the partition, one big block, 55 Giga I guess, so if I cannot recover it intact it wouldn't be any help because it must be mounted it as a drive with a password to show me the information.
Chances are pretty much low (if none at all)
But I wouldn't be (yet) so pessimist.
The good thing (it depends on a number of factors) of having an encryption through a "mountable volume" could be that the volume (container) is created in a whole chunk (i.e. it is not fragmented).
If this is the case (and unless there is a logical/physical defect in the actual SSD, such as an internal corrupted table of remapped sectors of wear leveling mechanism), it should be possible to recover the RAW data (PHOTOREC or similar file-based recovery).
A single 55 Gb sized file/volume is however biggish (and thus increases the chances of some sectors having being corrupted for *any* reason).
I would anyway try another attempt at it, you never know.
I suppose it was to much paranoia on my part having the ssd whole disk encrypted and all the information being contented inside a volume drive on that disk. So when the error occurred any information on the ssd was mixed up all together.
Yes, more generally, encrypting *anything* is in "normal" use, not only of no actual practical advantage, but as you have unfortunately experimented directly, a big obstacle to anything related to recovery if an issue arises.
In Italy we have a saying "mettere il dito sulla piaga" which equates to "to touch a sore point" (only somehow more crude/descriptive) and believe me, I am sorry for the loss of your data, but I have
On the other hand the good outcome of this misadventure of yours could be that you have learned (the hard way) something about the futility of encryption in general and of large encryption containers more specifically.
If you look at it in another way, you have forked from a noticeable amount of bucks to buy a SSD drive for what? Speed, good, pure, raw speed
And what is your next step?
Adding a layer of computing power need/slowness through encryption.....
Thank you anyway jaclaz for your time and professionalism. I read most of your post on this forum and I thing you are doing a great job.
I doubt about the professionaliism
, but you are welcome.
