Lost data on Buffalo Turbo USB 250Gb drive
« on: October 10, 2008, 08:25:25 am »

I had 50GB of data on the USB drive. I installed SecureLock and configured the disk encryption. I didn't read/realise that data would be lost and only considered this when I was prompted to format the disk. I cancelled out and it seems the partition has been deleted.


Now, when i connect the USB drive, I am prompted to decrypt the disk, which does successfully, but Windows does not recognise the drive or make it available as there is no partition. How am I able to recover this partition and the data?


i have been able to recover some data using photorec but the files have a GPG file extension. Does anyone know of a utility that would recover these? I have tried  GnuPG for windows but the utility states there is no openPGP in the files.
