  1. Bitlocker password is ruining my life!!


    Need urgent help! I never saved this Bitlocker recovery key, and can't access Windows because of it. Tried all the commands on manage bde, trying to unlock the computer, all unsuccessful. Autounlock (recovery key) is not enabled. How can I find this key. Would calling Microsoft help? It'll be my first ever call to MS. I don't want to re-image the drive, because I still need the files! Help me! I am desperate! Frustrated too! The computer says when calling microsoft tell them the error "critical_process_died". What number to call? Any idea how to recover this key? Thank you so much!


    Please, don't tell me to go here, because it is useless:
