The keys to successful Bitlocker data recovery

As a professional Bitlocker data recovery software, M3 Bitlocker Recovery can recover lost data from formatted, corrupted, failed, inaccessible, deleted or lost Bitlocker encrypted partition with exFAT, FAT32 & NTFS file systems. Unlike common data recovery, Bitlocker data recovery requires intact Bitlocker metadata and password or recovery key to decrypt data from Bitlocker encrypted drive, so Bitlocker data recovery requires:

1. Bitlocker metadata is not damaged: Bitlocker metadata was used to store the password and 48-digit recovery key when encrypting the drive with Bitlocker. In some situations, Bitlocker metadata has been corrupted so that lost data cannot be decrypted even if the users enter the correct password or 48-digit recovery key.

2. Have correct password or recovery key: The password or recovery key which the users enter must match the password or recovery key stored in Bitlocker metadata so that data can be decrypted from Bitlocker encrypted drive. If Bitlocker encrypted drive was installed OS, recovery key is the only way to decrypt data.

3. Bitlocker encrypted drive is not physically damaged: If Bitlocker encrypted drive is physically failed/damaged, please send it to a local data recovery professional for help.

So we highly recommend every customer to try M3 Bitlocker Recovery Trial before purchasing until it finds lost data from Bitlocker encrypted drive.

Excellent product, exactly as described. The local Desktop support staff told me my data was lost and there was nothing they could do to help. This software enabled me to recovery all my data from a failed Bitlocker disk. Would strongly recommend the product, its easy to use and well supported.

I will like to leave a testimonial on this powerful recovery software. I am really really impressed by what the bitlocker recovery software does. I have serached online to get a solution before buying M3 Bitlocker Recovery software and I was told there was no hope to recovering Users' data. Know I know there hope. Thanks for engineering such a powerful application.

It worked great! We had restored a VM that had a Bitlocker protected drive – Windows would see the drive as Bitlocker protected but Bitlocker management on the OS would not recognize it – we tried lots of other things but your product was the only thing we found that would help. Thanks!

Well, I've just figured out that I should not assign a drive letter to the 'lost' partition and let the recovery software to find it. I am able to recover all my files now and it only took 5 seconds to display the original file system. I must say it's a great software that is worth the money.
