  1. Windows 10 with Bitlocker: Data recovery unable to read files


    I am trying to backup some data out of a bootlooping/non starting Windows 10 system.


    The drives are encrypted with BitLocker and unlocking with the recovery key worked. I can browse e.g. the C: drive just fine and see all folders and file names. Opening of files within the users document folder e.g. with notepad fails with a "Permission denied" error. Writing new files works flawlessly.

    I was then able to takeownership via the takeown command and also change permissions via the icacls command. However, I still see all folders within "Documents" but can neither open via notepad nor copy them to an external usb drive - all I see is "Access denied". Other folders outside of the "Documents" folder are fully accessible without issues. What is special about the "Documents" folder of the user in question?

    :)

  2. recovery bitlocker blue screen

    Hi Rick,

    Please follow the suggestions below and check if you are able to boot to your desktop.

    • Places to look for your BitLocker key:
      • On a printout you saved. Look in places you keep important papers.
      • Saved on a USB flash drive. Plug the USB flash drive into 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.
      • In your Microsoft account. To get your recovery key, go to
        BitLocker Recovery Keys.

    • Or ask someone for help:
      • Ask someone with administrator privileges on the same PC to unlock it with their key.
      • If your PC is connected to a domain (usually a work or school computer), ask a system administrator for your recovery key

    Hope this helps in resolving the bitlocker recovery keys. Keep us posted on the bitlocker recovery key issues. We are happy to help!
