  1. computer failed and encrypted drive cannot be accessed


    computer failed and encrypted drive cannot be accessed. Took SSD out of computer, printed out the bitlocker key but the drive cannot be accessed. Only drive that appears is a drive "A" but it is not the data and it stated that there is no file system. Looking at the partitions the data appears to be there but no drive is defined for it and no file system. Attempting to access the drive or partition does not ask for the bitlocker key. There has to be a way to recover the data. How can bitlocker not allow access? It seems that bitlocker is not functioning and has trashed the drive for it is unre

    Encrypted External Drive that cannot be opened.

    Hi Sana,

    It is a good idea to use Bitlocker to protect hard drives. Please provide the following needed information:

    1. How do you try to access the drive?

    2. Do you get any pop-up message when trying to access the drive?

    3. Is this an external hard drive?

    You can turn off Bitlocker Drive Encryption by following these steps:


    • Login as Administrator to your PC.

    • Click Start, click Control Panel, click
      Security
      , and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    • From the BitLocker Drive Encryption page, find the volume on which you want BitLocker Drive Encryption turned off, and click
      Turn Off BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    • From the What level of decryption do you want dialog box, click either
      Disable BitLocker Drive Encryption or Decrypt the volume as needed.

    Regards.
