    encrypted image restore (truecrypt)?


    I saved a macrium image backup onto an external drive that is encrypted (not just a volume on the disk, the whole disk itself). Is it possible to decrypt the image from the rescue media when restoring the image? or can you keep the disk mounted when running the rescue disk? Thanks in advance!

    The rescue media will need to include a copy of TrueCrypt. Once you've booted into its environment, run TrueCrypt and unlock your encrypted drive.
