    I've just started using disk encryption on the drive holding my data. This is NOT the drive containing the Windows 10 install and used for booting the computer. However, I have moved a lot of my Windows configuration (desktop, pictures, videos, etc.) o the encrypted drive.

    When I start windows, I have to manually mount the encrypted drive (this is for security and the way I want it). After it's mounted, the desktop refreshes OK and I can see my desktop icons again. However, the Windows Taskbar never refreshes. Any applications/folders I had pinned to the Taskbar are gone and I can't figure out a way to get them back. 'm assuming my preferences for what's on the Taskbar are still there somewhere so I'm thinking if I can force the Taskbar to refresh they'd show up? Any thoughts? I

    As a bonus question to what @ochhanz said, what program are you using to encrypt the drive?
