    BitLocker How can I access drive?


    I have a hard drive that was suspended during an in-place install win 10, build 16299-431. I resumed BitLocker protection on all drives (5 internal ) but this one I can't open any of the files but name and properties are visible and accessible. I can read and write to drive. I have taken ownership of drive. It shows not decrypted. How can I access the drive?

    Thank you for your help !!!

    :)

    BitLocker key cannot unlock the disk. Neither can i reinstall cause the drive is blocked

    Hi Havard,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing currently.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • Did you try to unlock the drive using the Bitlocker application in Windows 10?
    • If yes, did you get any error message while trying that?

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if that helps:

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to try unlocking the drive using the Bitlocker facility available in Windows 10 and check if you are able to unlock it successfully. If you are getting any error message with says “Application not found”, then I would suggest you
    to refer the article provided in the link below:

    I would suggest that you try the steps mentioned in the link below and check if it helps resolve your issue.

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For

    Bitlocker menu in Control Panel is gone!!!!!

    Hi,

    From the above screenshot I see that you are not able to access or see the Bitlocker Drive Encryption in Control Panel, i suggest you to change the view of the Control panel and then check if you are able to access or view it.

    Follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Type Control Panel in the Search bar and then Enter.
    • Select the View by options in the upper right pane.
    • In Category select the small icons and then check if you can view the Bitlocker Drive Encryption option.
    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
