Overview of Rescue Procedures

BestCrypt Volume Encryption provides the user with a number of procedures to avoid losing encrypted data accidentally. For example, this could become necessary when physical sectors where critical data is stored become damaged (like encrypted volume headers).

Recovering encrypted data is possible if the user has a Rescue File for the volume. By default, BestCrypt Volume Encryption creates and updates the Rescue File (rescue.rsc) in the folder where the software is installed. The user can change location where the software automatically saves the Rescue File by running the Rescue->Rescue data default location command. Since the folder where the software is installed can also be encrypted or even stored on damaged disk, BestCrypt Volume Encryption suggests the user should use commands from Rescue menu to copy the Rescue File to safe place.

Several accidental situations are possible:
