Encryption Troubles

I have encrypted my system partition but DC bootloader does not accept password.

  1. National symbols in password. If your keyboard has QWERTZ or AZERTY
    layout, then you can use symbols only from the following sets:
    [a-z][A-Z][0-9].

    1. Boot from Live Media with DC (or connect your drive to another
      system with DC) to mount, check for bootloader or decrypt
      volume.
  2. Routine Troubles

I did nothing, encrypted system just does not boot anymore.

  1. Boot from Live Media with DC (or connect your drive to another
    system with DC) to mount, check for bootloader or decrypt volume.

I have accidentally formatted mounted encrypted partition.

Decrypt partition and use any data recovery software.

I have accidentally formatted unmounted encrypted partition.

I have deleted second partition and system does not boot anymore.

I have "Error 4" when trying to mount encrypted volume

  1. Password is not correct.
  2. Your volume header is corrupted.
    1. Restore header from backup.
