    Bitlocker decryption was interrupted and Now I dont have access to my drives


    Hi

    I recently wanted to turn off BitLocker encryption on one of my drives which got interrupted and now I don't have access to the drive all my files were inside the drive which is now all locked on the drive that I don't have access to.

    The problem is that now whenever I reconnect the drive to my laptop the computer sort of freezes at the moment and I get no signs of the drive anywhere on my computer.

    Help is really appreciated because I really need all my files.

    :)

  3. How to turn bitlocker "again" on a drive which was previously bitlocker decrypted? Please Help!

    Hi,

    Device encryption helps protect your data by encrypting ("scrambling") it. Only someone with the right encryption key (like a password) can decrypt ("unscramble") it.
    • Sign in to Windows with an administrator account.
    • Go to Start, enter encryption, and select
      Change device encryption settings
      from the list of results.
    • Select Manage BitLocker, select Turn on BitLocker, and then follow the instructions.
    Also, please refer to the below link and check if it helps.
