    Removing Trucrypt then image?

    Have a laptop I that's currently XP with Trucrypt and I want to install W7 and trucrypt, do I have to unencrypt it first then image or can I just image straight over the top. I'm going to be using clonezilla to image it if that makes any difference.

    I've always just imaged over the top and then re-encrypted.

    Image over the top as it's going to wipe the drive where all the encrypted info is held.

    I believe that imaging an encrypted drive will give you a massive image file, as it can't tell what's empty space.

    That's if you're taking an image of the encrypted drive, imaging over the top takes no extra time.

    Image over it - encrypted info will be deleted anyway. Don't pull an image from it though.
