  1. Delete a bitlocker partition by mistake - can I get it back


    By a big mistake, I ended up working on my Backup USB hard drive which is encrypted with Bitlocker. There I happen to delete the "volume" partition so it now stands as 5 TB unallocated space - then I stopped everything when I suddenly discovered it. That's it, the disk has not been formatted or written to subsequently Can I do anything to get i t back

    :)

  3. Deleted the OEM partition with BitLocker running in Windows 10 Pro...

    Yes, it was stupid. Is this going to be a problem to correct?

    The C: drive is the only encrypted disk and it is working. I had three partitions showing in Disk Management shown from left to right as 100 MB, 435GB and 500mb. The 500MB was listed as RECOVERY. I deleted it without turning BitLocker off. Now I have left
    to right 450MB UNALLOCATED, 435GB and 100MB. Diskpart lists the 16MB boot partition). Why is it re-ordered after the OEM RECOVERY was deleted?

    I would like to add the space to the C: drive but as it is listed first, expansion cannot occur. I would appreciate any insight on this!

    I followed the step 1 instructions in that link you posted...


    So i should now turn on bitlocker to see if it works? Or do I need to do both step 2 and 3 in that link you posted... before I turn on bitlocker?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Thanks saw that mistake. I post some more pictures. So what do you want me to do now? Do step 2 and 3 in that link you posted? Or try to turn on bitlocker right now after doing the 1st step? Im not sure if in that link, they want you to do all 3 steps or not? Or is it try step 1... if it works, thats it and then turn on bitlocker?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I am doing step 3.... I did the first part of step 3 and it showed tons of words which meant i entered it correct. But the last step of step 3... i seem to get error? What am i typing wrong here?
