    Bitlocker Recovery Key for Wrong Device


    Hi,


    I recently got my computer repaired and when I got it back it's been asking for my bitlocker recovery key. I went to support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/4530477/windows-10-finding-your-bitlocker-recovery-key and followed the instructions, but the only recovery key that's associated with my microsoft account isn't for my device. This is weird, because I only have one device connected to microsoft and it isn't the one I have the recovery key for. Is there anyway for me to get the right recovery key?


    Thank you!

    :)

    Bitlocker Recovery Key for Wrong Device

    How to define [Device] - [BitLocker recovery key] pair

    I want to delete not-associated-with-any-pc BitLocker recovery key. Device name in 'About' and that shown on the listing page for BitLocker recovery key seems to be different. Windows installed date in 'About' and registered date for BitLocker seems to
    be different, too. As my desktop devices experienced reinstall at problem before, it is uncertain which device listed are actually in use. If a bootable USB could be counted, I wish know how to identify them, too. Thank you very much.
