    veryone,

    I have this external HD which holds Photos of my whole life, Video Tutorials and Ebooks. It has two partitions (H: and IBitLocker Drive Encryption Recovery Error: Error Recovering Disk... :) and both partitions were Bit Locker Encrypted. I have recently moved to Mac (with Bootcamp) and I decided to Decrypt / Remove the Bit Locker as otherwise the HD wasn't accessible on Mac Side. So I started with decryption (on Windows 10) of 1st. partition (HBitLocker Drive Encryption Recovery Error: Error Recovering Disk... :) and it was just a few percent done when my little daughter disturbed the USB Data Trasnsfer wire which caused decryption to stop and not complete. When I re-plug the USB wire the BitLocker interface was gone and the error started appearing. The HD is powered by USB and there is no extra Power Supply attached to it.

    Now, I am unable to access the drive by any mean. It doesn't ask for the Password and it just shows one drive (I think the one which I was decrypting). To make it worse, the recovery key backup was in the drive itself and I dont have any other backup. However, I remember the password which I was using to unlock the Drive.

    Also, there is an anomaly to this behavior too. On Windows 10 which is having updates on, I can only see one drive/partition (no Lock pad) and it's always busy. The system stops responding if I double click the drive. However, on Windows 7 which is actually an old OS to Windows 10 surprisingly, I can see both Drives/Partitions with a Lock pad.

    And the one which I started decrypting is not accessible and throws an error: Error recovering disk: "A recovery key was not found on this drive. the drive can not be unlocked" while the one which was yet to be decrypted is accessible. Please help me gain access to the partition which is not accessible. I have read about this Windows BitLocker Repair Tool but since I dont have a Recovery Key or Recovery Password I cant use it.

    I just have the normal password which I was using to Open the Drive. Another utility that I tried is from m3datarecovery.com and that is accepting the password but not able to recover the data. Any solution to fix the drive and get the data back. Can we make the Drive Decryption resume may be through Windows Restore or Any other Utility / Events viewer etc. Or get the Meta Data and find recovery key/password using normal password. May be I am thinking high.

    Attaching a screenshot of error from Windows 7. Please let me know if you need any other information from my side.

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  3. Data Recovery from Bitlocker Encrypted Drive Fail

    Hi friends,

    I'm using Windows 10, Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363

    I'm in a bit of a jam. Thanks to a faulty USB cable, my 8TB external hard-drive disconnected while decrypting the data. And so now it's not accepting my password, which I know is correct.

    I get the first following error:


    BitLocker Drive Encryption Recovery Error: Error Recovering Disk... [​IMG]


    So I did some googling and found these instructions:

    How to Recover Data from Damaged Bitlocker Drive

    I bought another 8TB hard-drive, formatted it and executed:

    repair-bde E: F: -pw –Force

    This went to 100%, which some errors reading specific sectors (which the article outlined). But when I went to run chkdsk as recommended, I got the following error on the output drive (F:\)

    I also get the following error when I attach the output drive from Windows:


    BitLocker Drive Encryption Recovery Error: Error Recovering Disk... [​IMG]


    When I get the disks in DISKPART, the corrupted drive seems to still have something on it, even though it went to completion with repair-bde.

    I'm at a loss, my next step is ddrescue on Linux, but I'm not even sure that would work with a, presumably, still encrypted drive.

    Any help would be greatly, greatly, appreciated. It's family photos, all that jazz, so I need to do everything I can to get it back.

    Thanks!
