Problem to mount and recover data from encrypted partition.

Post by karamjeet » Tue Dec 05, 2017 5:05 am

Hello Everyone
I am having a serious problem regarding mounting of partition of encrypted disk.
I have been following this post : viewtopic.php?f=50&t=257794.
But did not got pretty clear information to come to an end.

Actually last 2 weeks back i had log off at night my laptop and when i start this next morning it skip home and stopped at an error that on image i am sharing as follow:

This is error coming every time when i start my laptop
i tried almost every possible solution on internet, i received mixed reviews on solution.
Like someone said that it may be randsomware attack , someone said it may due to hardware failure.
One person said hard drive got corrupted in boot sector which i can't understand. But when i try a live USB Linux mint it successfully loaded boot of linux mint using live USB.

Now problem is that my encrypted drive is not mounting even from live USB.
I have an idea in mind to copy the contents of encrypted drive to some other disk and to recover data from there.
Is it possible to do so , what is the correct way to recover data?
In this situation what i know is only encryption keys that i know to unlock encrypted partition.

Please help to recover my data.
Thanks & Regards,
Karamjeet Singh

My reply here covers the steps to externally activate the LVM part of an encrypted Mint OS...

Data stored in an encrypted volume will only be accessible with the original password. Without this key, all the data will remain scrambled beyond hope of recovery.
