Question Can TWRP backup encrypted phones?

Can TWRP backup encrypted phones?

Because since it has been encrypted, it is failing. I'd like to make a backup before I try installing a new ROM.

Same here. TWRP cannot access /data

Would it be possible with CWM recovery?

If encrypted, you need to make sure you enter your encryption password right when it asks in TW recovery. This will allow TeamWin to decrypt the drive and be able to back it up.

It depends on which TWRP version you have.

What version of TWRP would I need? I have v2.8.1.0 and I've never been asked for the password.
