    How to Find BitLocker Recovery Key in Windows 10


    You can use BitLocker to encrypt the removable data drive (external hard drive or USB flash drive).

    If you lost or don't know your BitLocker key (ex: password, PIN, USB) but you have your BitLocker recovery key for an encrypted fixed, or removable drive, you can use that recovery key to unlock your drive. The BitLocker recovery key is a 48-digit number stored in your computer.

    You have the following options to select from when you back up your BitLocker recovery key:
    • Save to your Microsoft account
    • Save to a USB flash drive
    • Save to a file
    • Print the recovery key

    1. Depending on how you chose to back up your BitLocker recovery key for a drive, here are places to look for your BitLocker recovery key:


    If you printed the BitLocker recovery key
    Look in places you keep important papers.

    If you saved your BitLocker recovery key to a USB flash drive
    Plug the USB flash drive in to your locked PC and follow the instructions. If you saved the key as a text file on the flash drive, use a different computer to read the text file.

    Locate and open the file to read the text file.
