    Drive from Win10 Home BitLocked


    I've connected an SSD from a broken Lenovo laptop with Win 10 Home to my stationary computer with Win 7 Pro because I want to backup the drive before I send it away.


    I can't access it however and get a "A recovery key was not found on this drive. The drive cannot be unlocked" from BitLocker. The problem is that I haven't activated BitLocker so I don't have any recovery keys or files and if I check the laptop on my microsoft account it says BitLocker: SUSPENDED. This means that it's was not activated on the drive right?

    What to do now? Did the laptop come with BitLocker pre-activated and Lenovo sit on the keys or what?

    :)

    Bitlocker drive got currupted

    Hi Rahul,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    From the description, it appears that you were able to recover the data using third party application. So now, are you trying to encrypt/decrypt the bit locker in Windows 10?

    I suggest you to check the below steps and see if it helps.

    To Encrypt Drive Partition using Bitlocker you need to access BitLocker Encryption Window First. For this,


    • Open
      Cortana Search
      .

    • Type
      BitLocker
      in the search field.

    • And in the search results select
      Manage BitLocker option.

    • BitLocker
      Drive Encryption window pops up on your screen.
    How to Encrypt Drive Partition using Bitlocker

    • By following the above steps, you are into the
      BitLocker Drive Encryption window.

    • Now you can see all the drives of your computer listed on that window.

    • Look for the drive that you want to encrypt and click on
      Turn On BitLocker option of that drive to Encrypt Drive Partition using Bitlocker.

    • Another
      BitLocker Encryption
      window will appear on your screen.

    • Here you will be asked
      How you want to unlock the drive.

    • You have two options,
      password and smart card. I opted for the password method. So click on
      Use a password to unlock this drive.

    • It will ask you to provide a strong
      password.

    • Remember that you will need this password at every stage when you boot
      Windows 10. And also carefully remember the password as with the wrong password you will not be able to use encrypted system correctly.

    • Click
      Next
      after entering and confirming the password.

    • Now you will have to
      back up your recovery key. In future, if you face any difficulty in accessing the encrypted drives then this key will be helpful.

    • Choose the preferred location and click
      Next.

    • In the following window, you have decided that
      how much of a drive you will like to encrypt.

    • Choose the desired option and click
      Next.

    • The next window will ask
      Are you ready to encrypt the drive.

    • Click on Start Encrypting
      option.

    • The process of encryption drive partition is over.

    • Restart your system.

    • You will see that encrypted drive is locked.

    • When you double-click it to open it, you will be asked to provide the
      password.

    • Enter the
      password
      and click Unlock.

    • On the
      Notification Area
      of the Taskbar, a pop-up box will appear showing you the encryption process going on in the background of the desktop.

    • After the completion of the encryption, you will be informed about it.
    Hope it helps.

    Let us know the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
