My problem is that I've got a 1TB drive that was Bitlocker encrypted, however the Bitlocker partition became RAW file system or unknown file system and I really want to be able to recover the data. As far as I'm aware, all data on that hard drive is just sitting there, all encrypted, without the information telling my Windows 7 OS that it's using NTFS and is Bitlocker encrypted.
Bitlocker encrypted drive D is showing as RAW file system and not NTFS. I want to be able to have my drive shown as a Bitlocker encrypted drive with NTFS file system, then I can just unlock Bitlocker encrypted drive and get all data back. Extremely grateful for anyone who can help me.
The Bitlocker encrypted drive is no longer accessible to unlock. When I run repair-bde and push the data to an empty drive it then prompts to check the drive with chkdsk /f.
After running that process I get the following error:
Type of the file system is NTFS.
Volume label is Media.
Corrupt master file table. Windows will attempt to recover master file table from disk.
Windows cannot recover master file table. CHKDSK aborted.
It is RAW drive. Bitlocker repair tool cannot solve this issue. Please download and try a program called M3 Bitlocker Recovery. M3 Bitlocker Recovery is a professional Bitlocker recovery software which can recover data from Bitlocker encrypted drive which shows as RAW file system and not NTFS.
