BitLocker is a full disk encryption feature included with selected editions of Windows Vista or 7 Ultimate, Windows Vista or 7 Enterprise, Windows 8.1 Pro, Windows 8.1 Enterprise, or Windows 10 Pro. It is designed to protect data by providing encryption for your entire volume as well as help protect against unauthorized changes to your system such as firmware-level malware.
BitLocker recovery is a process by which you can restore access to the data on an inaccessible Bitlocker encrypted drive if unlocking the drive in the usual way does not work. Bitlocker recovery process requires the password or Bitlocker recovery key to decrypt the data.
There are several ways to store the Bitlocker recovery key according to the different Windows Operating System editions: A txt file, on a USB drive, physically printed, in Microsoft account or Azure Active Directory account. Learn how to find lost Bitlocker recovery key.
As a professional Bitlocker data recovery software, M3 Bitlocker Recovery can recover deleted/lost files from a Bitlocker encrypted drive after providing the password or Bitlocker recovery key.
Unlike common data recovery, Bitlocker data recovery requires the intact Bitlocker metadata and the password or Bitlocker recovery key to decrypt data from the Bitlocker encrypted drive.
Data drive: The password and Bitlocker recovery key are required to decrypt data from the Bitlocker encrypted drive.
OS drive: Bitlocker recovery key is the only way to decrypt data due to TPM. After the Bitlocker encrypted computer or Surface failed/crashed, M3 Data Recovery WinPE bootable media can rescue your data easily.
Password and Bitlocker recovery key are not working: In this situation, M3 Bitlocker Recovery can recover lost data from the corrupted Bitlocker encrypted drive as long as the Bitlocker metadata is intact and the password & Bitlocker recovery key are correct.
Physical damage: The hardware issue is beyond of any data recovery software. In this case, please send the physically damaged Bitlocker drive to a local professional for data recovery help.
Bitlocker metadata corruption: The Bitlocker metadata was used to store the password and Bitlocker recovery key when encrypting the drive. In some situations, Bitlocker metadata has been completely corrupted (For example: Format a Bitlocker encrypted drive under Windows 10/8/7) so that the lost data cannot be decrypted even if you have the correct password and recovery key.
Password and Bitlocker recovery key are lost or unknown: M3 Bitlocker Recovery doesn't and won't break into your Bitlocker encrypted drive if you lost the password and Bitlocker recovery key (This is as much of a policy issue as it is a technological limitation), maybe the 3rd-party Bitlocker password brute-force cracking tool can recover the forgotten Bitlocker password by running a attack.
Data recovery varies and is a complicated case, so we highly suggest you to free download M3 Bitlocker Recovery Trial version and try it until your lost data is found before purchasing.
Tips: For a service provider, M3 Bitlocker Recovery Technician has been integrated into M3 Data Recovery Technician which allows to provide the technical service to your clients with unlimited usage.
