Sanity Check Recovering Data w/McAfee Encrypted Hard Drive

#1 Post by TheJoeFletch » 22 Jul 2014, 15:35

This past Friday, my Windows 7 machine locked up. I waited for it to respond for about 15 minutes. It didn't! So I held the power button down to give it a fresh boot. The machine blinked a blue screen of death and rebooted to a standard Windows diagnostic screen. The machine automatically ran the diagnostic with no solution. This was in an endless loop. I ran CHKDSK from a DOS prompt without any success.

I then pulled the hard drive to hook up to another system to see what I could find. It asked me to reformat, which I did NOT do. I did some Google research and it appears that the MBR or partition was damaged. So I downloaded TestDisk and tried to scan the partition (Intel - without logging); quick scan and deep scan did not return anything to recover (but was able to completely scan the drive). So at this point I logged a help desk ticket with my company.

I brought the machine in Monday morning and they told me that the hard drive is encrypted with McAfee. They tried to run some software on my machine from a USB drive (I did not catch the name of it) but it locked up and they did not try it again. They pulled the hard drive to test it via an IT diagnostic machine and got an I/O error. At this point they told me that they could not do anything because the hard drive crashed. But I didn't believe it since I did not get any errors from connecting through my personal USB hard drive adapter. So I was able to get the hard drive in order to continue testing on my own (which may or may not be a good idea since they didn't want to give it up).

I ran SpinRite on it and there was one sector that was not recoverable (I'm not sure if that is causing the issue or not).

I continued doing more research, but it appears that the drive can only be recovered via my company's IT group with McAfee software and codes.

System Information
  • IMB Thinkpad Lenovo T420
  • Windows 7
  • Hard drive is encrypted with McAfee (I'm not sure what version of MEE it is)
  • 320GB hard drive
  • 2 partitions; 1 main partition, the other partition is labeled BDEDrive (which I think is a standard Windows 7 partition)
This is the current message I get when doing a quick scan on the drive.

Code: Select all

Invalid NTFS or EXFAT boot
 0 D HPFS - NTFS          239091  60 54 393213 187  7 2475977885
     HPFS - NTFS          239091  60 54 393213 187  7 2475977885

So what am I asking? Have I come to the right conclusion here? I cannot do anything else without my company's IT group. If not, any suggestions on what my next steps would be?

I'd need Info from TestDisk / Analyse to check your current partition table and Disk Info.
I've no idea about Mcafee encryption.
Most encrypted disks are completely encrypted, so the MBR and the boot sector also.
It's a problem because disks and partitions are not Intel or GPT standard anymore.
In your case, you can have a look here, if it helps:

I've no idea about your mee version either?
In case, ask for?
It's only intended as a try to remove encryption first?
Please be careful.
To recover your MBR it's not a problem.

When I select the disk, TestDisk suggest that I pick Intel. When I analyze the disk, I get the following.

Which looks weird to be because the first partition is listed twice exactly the same.

I have no idea either. It's driving me crazy that my IT group just gave up on this!

I will read that, thanks for sharing!

My MEE seems to be v6. See below.

Yes, that is the problem, I'm not sure how to do this without IT support.

I know. I have not written to the drive at all (as far as I know). I need a 320GB drive in order to make an image. The new drive that my company gave me is half the size of my old one!
Fiona wrote:To recover your MBR it's not a problem.
ok, I have to look on exactly how to do this and if the MBR backup exists.

Thanks for replying!

I will post back with details from the log after I complete the quick scan and deep scan (again).

So after the quick scan, I get the following, which is missing the partition with the actual data on it.

If I look at the files on BDEDrive...

I see that there are some files listed from when I started running into problem. I think that may be the last time that I tried to boot the machine since it initially happened at about 1PM EST on 18-Jul-2014.

Is there anything here that could potentially help?

It looks like your partition table is ok?
Invalid NTFS or EXFAT boot means that your boot sector is not ok.
If testdisk displays this message it displays the affected partition too.
That's why your partition appears twice.
But this could be a normal behavior because your boot sector is encrypted and not standard anymore.
Otherwise your disk looks ok.
Can you check your disk using crystal disk info?
http://crystalmark.info/software/Crysta ... dex-e.html
Please download the portable version, because the windows installer (exe) contains adware open candy.
It's only intended to check your disk and exclude anything wrong?
I've no idea why you've got a BSOD?
Would it be possible that mcafee causes problems?
Until yet, it's for me difficult to judge.
Did you run chkdsk driveletter: /r
Did you consider to set back your system to a previous restore point within your startup repair tool?

Hmmm...ok. I will dig a bit deeper into it.

I also looked at the Boot Sector and found this.

I'm not sure if this is because the partition is encrypted or not. Would it be best to Rebuild BS or Dump it?

Your disk looks absolutely ok.
TestDisk Advanced and the message that your boot sector and its backup are bad are probably a result of mcafee encryption.
If your boot sector and file system are encrypted, datarecovery software nor testdisk wouldn't probably find any reasonable result, like a valid boot sector nor file system (MFT).
There shouldn't be anything changed using testdisk.
Did you already have a look for that link above and the description how to create a win PE builder CD and have a try to decrypt your disk?
It should be done first.
