    BitLocker encrypted drive not unlocking with recovery key

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand you are not able to unlock the encrypted drive with recovery key on the Windows 10 PC, you may want to refer to this article to check if that helps.



    BitLocker recovery guide.



    However, as the issue is with the BitLocker encryption. I would suggest you to post your query in the
    TechNet,
    where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on BitLocker issues to assist you with your query.



    Thanks,

  4. BitLocker Drive Encryption Recovery Key

    Bitlocker Drive Encryption

    Recently I was attempting to encrypt my drive with bitlocker because windows was suggesting to encrypt them via the security page when logging into my account. Though, when I do attempt to encrypt them with bitlocker it states that my drive is already
    encrypted via bitlocker. I was wondering if there was a different way that it needs to be set up because I was hoping to add the extra layer of security to my drives with bitlocker encryption and password protecting them via a recovery key.
