I recently used diskcryptor(similar to truecrypt) to encrypt my Windows 7 partitions. But I didn't encrypt a system reserved partition and it totally f'd up the windows install. I'd still like to get my data off the Windows installation but I'm having a lot of trouble. I encrypted it with AES-256 and I remember the password.
I'm running linux mint off a usb drive right now. Gparted shows the two encrypted partitions, but they're black, as in unknown file system type, and I can't mount them.
mounting them normally via cli, but I don't know what to type for the filesystem when mounting.
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb3 encrypted
(where sdb3 is one of the partitions), but I get /dev/sdb3 is not a valid LUKS device(which makes sense I guess since I didn't use LUKS to encrypt them.
I guess my question is how can I use any program supporting AES to decrypt the files? It seems weird that LUKS, which can use the same type of encryption, can't decrypt it.
