  3. Encrypted drive then reinstalled Windows and now can't get in!?!?!?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand that you are unable to access the encrypted drive after re-installing Windows, we will look into this for you. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    • Did you enabled BitLocker on the hard drive before reinstallation of Windows 10?
    • Are you getting any option to enter a BitLocker Recovery key?
