I have installed disk filter driver. This driver encrypts disk content.

If Windows 8 boots in Recovery Environment Command Prompt mode then filter driver is not loaded. In consequence of this, the encrypted disk becomes unavailable. I need access to disk in this mode.


How to solve this problem?


Is it possible to manually load driver? Is it possible to configure Windows to load driver in Recovery Environment Command Prompt?

I cannot find detailed information about this mode. Is there documentation about it? How Windows works in this mode?

Thanks in advance!

Encryption is supposed to block unauthorized access to data. Recovery environment is actually a mini OS based on WinPE and it is normal for you to not access your encrypted drive. If you can access your data from a PE then there is no point in encryption.
