    external hard disk decryption


    Hello,


    I have not been able to open my encrypted external hard drive on Windows 10 pro. The external drive was encrypted by using the same system and after encryption completed I removed the external drive then when I attached the drive, it says the device is locked and when I tap the drive option I get an error message that states that :


    "The BitLocker encryption on this drive isn't compatible with your version of Windows. Try opening the drive using a newer version of Windows."


    No option to enter my passcode is given, it just closes the dialogue window. I have my passcode and my recovery key, but there is no opportunity to use it.


    I used command prompt to open or unlocked it but there is solution I get.

    please help me what I do

    :)

    Locked out by BitLocker .. Accidently plugged off External hard disk while decrypting

    So I was decrypting my external hard disk and while at 1% I accidently unplugged the external hard disk. When I plugged it back on, the external hard disk was not detected. I tried to plug it on another laptop it was detected and was asked for password but
    it said invalid password while I entered correctly. I have tried looking for recovery key but couldnt find it. HELP !

    I have tried some solutions suggested but not even one seems work. What should I do? I have everything in there of 6 years backed-up from my laptop
     
  3. External Hard disk contents are not visible.

    Hi Pranoti,

    For us to narrow down your concern with your external hard disk, we would like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue (e.g., updates, software installation)?
    • To make sure that we have not missed on anything, what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Do you hear any clicking sound when connecting your hard disk?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you update all your device driver.

    We look forward to your response.
