    Bitlocker recovery key says "Digit group 7 contains an error"


    I don't recall changing my password, but I haven't used the disk in a while (external drive).


    So, I tried to unlock it with the recovery key, and I'm getting this error. I don't understand what's going on.

  3. Bitlocker recovery key

    Hi,

    I forgot my bitlocker drive password and also dont have access to recovery key but using command prompt I am able to get password ID and numerical password ID of the encrypted drive, now can I use any of these two to unlock my drive.

    manage-bde.exe -protectors -get E:

    although when I try to unlock my drive using recovery key option by copying the numerical password ID and pasting it in the enter recovery key field it gives an error that digit group 1 contains an error, pls help with it as the drive contains very important
    data and I need access to it.

    or is there any other way to unlock the drive.

    The screen shot is attached

    Bitlocker recovery key

    Hello,

    I'm the IT user-support person in a company and I have this issue with a corporate laptop (belong to a domain & Active Directory):

    I received from a user his laptop "dead" (no power-on, nothing to start-it). Accordingly to company security policies I deliver the laptop in service with another blank disk (the same SSD type) because the original one contained data.

    After receiving the fixed laptop from service, I changed back the disks by putting the original one at it place.

    Now, it occur the issue: at first step of booting it request the Bitlocker recovery key because the disk was bitlocker encrypted before.

    The bad-luck is that I don't have this Bitlocker recovery key nowhere: on the printed paper, USB memory stick and not even on the Active Directory.

    Is strange, because ussually, the other workstations (laptops with bitlocker activated) have this information on Active Directory.

    Maybe because of a possible cause: the laptop owner use to work at home with the laptop and the Active Directory didn't synchronized the information related to Bitlocker recovery key (like for other laptop used in LAN).

    I have the "Recovery key ID" on the blue screen for the laptop but is useless because I cannot find the "Bitlocker recovery key" on Active Directory using it.

    What do you suggest to do in this case?

    Many thanks for any advice and answer.

    Mircea Dumitrescu.
