Hi @anjayani,

I recommend taking a look at this Knowledge Base article we have available: https://support.eset.com/en/kb8435-error-unable-to-start-the-system-due-to-a-problem-accessing-vital-encryption-data-in-eset-endpoint-encryption-or-eset-full-disk-encryption

If you are using the correct Recovery Data file for the machine in question as per the Recovery steps here: https://help.eset.com/efde/en-US/recovery_data.html we are likely going to need you to perform a 'search for meta data' and provide this to us via our support channels that you can find here: https://www.eset.com/int/support/contact/ this will allow us to investigate this further for you.

Thank you,
