    recover encrypted data


    Hello!
    I hope you can help me with the following situation:
    I encrypted a few files on an external hard disk, using an older laptop.
    That laptop does not boot anymore and cannot decrypt those files.
    From what I understood, those files can only be decrypted from that windows.
    I can access data from the hdd through an external rack.
    Is it possible to access the credentials and copy them to another computer or maybe to the same old laptop but with another windows?
    If I give windows repair, will my credentials be affected?

    :)

  2. how to recover data from bitlocker encrypted drive without the key?

    I don't believe there is a way of doing this, that's the point of encryption to prevent this sort of activity. If you have no way of getting the key I would suggest restore from backups.

    How to open recovered encrypted files

    Hi Navid,

    Thank you for posting in Community.

    We understand your concern and we will provide the assistance required to help you resolve the issue.

    You can lose access to encrypted files if you install a new operating system or upgrade your current one, or if your current operating system fails. The following steps can help you regain access to encrypted files.

    As you have stated that, the recovered files belonged to the previous OS I would suggest that you transfer the encrypted files to an external drive and perform the steps mentioned below:

    • Insert the USB that your certificate and key are saved on.
    • Open Certificate Manager open Run Command and type
      certmgr.msc
      in the dialog box, and then press Enter.‌

    Note: If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    In the left pane, click Personal.

    • Click the Action menu, point to All Tasks, and then click
      Import. This opens the Certificate Import wizard
      and then click Next.
    • Click Browse and navigate to the file's location, click
      Open, and then click Next.
    • If you have navigated to the right location but don't see the certificate you are importing, then, in the list next to the
      File name box, click Personal Information Exchange.
    • Type the password, select the Mark this key as exportable check box, and then click
      Next.
    • Click Place all certificates in the following store, confirm that the
      Personal store is indicated, click Next, and then click
      Finish.
    • After you import the certificate, you should have access to the encrypted files.

    Hope this information helps.
