On a whole disk encrypted a disk with two partitions, the second partition is inaccessible after formatting the primary partition without decrypting the disk.
Warning: Do not re-encrypt the C: Drive as this will result in overwriting the session key and PGPWDE01 file which contains the drive encryption information and makes the disk unrecoverable.
To resolve this issue, you must attached the disk to another computer with PGP Desktop installed. Then use the pgpwde command line interface to decrypt the disk.
