Hello,
I have 1TB Sony External Hard Disk which is encrypted by "DISKCRYPTOR" which was working fine but all of a sudden hard disk stopped showing up in Diskcryptor itself, i tried using hard disk in another system but no response ,i installed diskcryptor in another system but still no help. This Hard disk is showing up in diskpart,disk management
(where a popup shows up stating that "you must initialize a disk before logical disk manager can access it) but not in my computer, all my Work is stored in this hard disk, i think that "DISKCRYPTOR" somehow messed up my hard disk ,
please is there any way that i can restore my data and format the Harddisk ??
my os-Windows 8.1


Thank you

I can bring back data from software, but i need to format it and make it visible in disk management where it is showing "unallocated" , is there any way to format this BAD DISK? :rolleyes:
