How To Recover using WindowsImageBackup on USB Drive AFTER Drive Encrypted via HP Drive Encryption

HP Recommended
Elitebook 850 G3
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Want to know the right way to recover before I have to. I have an HP Elitebook 850 G3 and the hard drive is encrypted via HP Drive Encryption. I'm assuming the "usual" process of booting from a USB Windows 7 Recovery memory stick and then just recovering from a USB drive with my latest WindowsImageBackup on it isn't going to work too well since the hard drive is encrypted. I have confirmed I can boot from a USB Windows 7 Recovery memory stick and see my latest WindowsImageBackup on an external USB drive BUT I don't want to do a recovery from it just to test to see if it works since if it TOTALLY mucks things up (technical term from ex-L2 support @ HP guy) I'm hosed.

So wondering what the proper way to do the recovery is since the drive is encrypted via HP Drive Encryption.

 

Thanks much!
