    Bitlocker recovery - hoping someone can help


    My situation:

    Working on daughter's computer

    She was working and a restart occurred

    On boot, bit locker key was requested

    She never set up bit locker thus has no record of it

    Checked Microsoft to see if she had an account - no luck there

    I am able to access the cmd prompt on her computer

    Cannot access C: drive but can access X: drive

    Using manage-bde I've found a numerical password ID and a TPM ID

    Wondering if there is a way to either:

    - Identify the bit locker recovery key

    - unlock the C: drive using either of the numbers I've located


    My qualifications: Know enough to be dangerous at best.


    I've spent hours on the phone with both MS and Lenovo

    Suffice to say I'd rather have a root canal than keep going through the experience I've had thus far


    Data on her computer is critical as it relates to some recent patient files.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. recovery bitlocker blue screen

    Hi Rick,

    Please follow the suggestions below and check if you are able to boot to your desktop.

    • Places to look for your BitLocker key:
      • On a printout you saved. Look in places you keep important papers.
      • Saved on a USB flash drive. Plug the USB flash drive into your locked PC and follow the instructions. If you saved the key as a text file on the flash drive, use a different computer to read the text file.
      • In your Microsoft account. To get your recovery key, go to
        BitLocker Recovery Keys.

    • Or ask someone for help:
      • Ask someone with administrator privileges on the same PC to unlock it with their key.
      • If your PC is connected to a domain (usually a work or school computer), ask a system administrator for your recovery key

    Hope this helps in resolving the bitlocker recovery keys. Keep us posted on the bitlocker recovery key issues. We are happy to help!
