I have WD Passport 1TB. I used SmartWare to encrypt content of the drive. Now one of the heads of the drive is dead. And I have important information on it. I’v tried to write encrypted image to another drive with encryption chip taken from WD - didn’t help… How to restore data from encrypted image teken from my drive?
Dude, just to be honest it may not work at all. You see, the encryption comes from the controller card/chipset of the drive, so even changing it won’t work.
You’ll need a company that provides high-end data recovery services (Very expensive) and even so, recovery chances are dim as the encryption is 256-bit AES physical hardware encryption…
