My laptop uses windows 7 with pgp whole disk encryption product from Symantec. Today, the laptop crashed & is now showing some windows recovery related errors. (I am unable to boot to windows.)

Now, I need to access the data on that HDD, by connecting it as secondary HDD to my ubuntu system.

Had it been a simple (unencrypted) HDD, I could have easily connected it & mounted it to copy the data. However, it is not possible for encrypted HDD.

Is there a way to mount the pgp encrypted HDD on ubuntu? The partitions I am interested in are ntfs partitions, encrypted with symantec's pgp whole disk encryption.
