Thanks for the help, I was able to plug it into a different PC and decrypt it that way.

I haven't made a rescue CD with BestCrypt (d'oh), but I obviously know the password. Would I be able to plug the drive into another computer running BestCrypt and decrypt it permanently so it won't ask for a password on boot?

Yes.

Or would I have to use WinBuilder and build a bespoke windows recovery CD with BestCrypt,

You don't have to, but I would recommend it. It's always better to perform recovery operations from a clean, stable environment.

Decrypt bestcrypt disk

Hi,

My laptop's SSD is fully encrypted with BestCrypt, but the battery died in the middle of a Windows update and now won't boot. I can't use the Windows recovery as it can't decrypt the drive.

I haven't made a rescue CD with BestCrypt (d'oh), but I obviously know the password. Would I be able to plug the drive into another computer running BestCrypt and decrypt it permanently so it won't ask for a password on boot? Or would I have to use WinBuilder and build a bespoke windows recovery CD with BestCrypt, like http://www.jetico.com/web_help/bcve3/index.php?info=html/04_usage/02_rescue_procedures/01_overview.htm? Or is it lost forever? :(

It's a windows 10 laptop if it helps.

Thanks for the help!
