Imaging an encrypted drive - Windows 10

Postby Peabody » Mon Nov 27, 2017 6:23 pm

I have my Windows 7/64 laptop set up using MBR, and use Truecrypt whole drive encryption. To make and restore images of the C: partition, I boot to the IFL CD, then mount the C: partition in Truecrypt for Linux, which then lets me do a "normal" image of the TC mounted partition, which IFL now sees as unencrypted, so it can image only the used sectors. This works fine. Oh, and I tell IFL to encrypt the image.

I may need to go to Windows 10 soon. Is a setup like the one described above possible with Windows 10 (presumably with SecureBoot not enabled), either with a Truecrypt successor or something else?

If I used a self-encrypted hard drive on the Windows 10 computer, would the bios allow me to enter the drive's passcode, after which IFL could boot?

Has anyone actually gotten something like this to work?

Bump. Nobody has a thought about this?

You can use veracrypt (replaces truecrypt), or bitlocker, but it works
differently. See http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=616

i would be using Veracrypt whole-drive under Windows 10. So does this mean there are no longer any issues with UEFI, GPT or SecureBoot with regard to booting to an IFL CD and normal imaging of Veracrypt-mounted partitions?

you'll have to check with veracrypt what they support and what the best
options would be.
