I encrypted my external hard drive with BitLocker and accidently I formatted the drive. I have used few recovery software, they read all the data, but I cannot open the recovered files. Is there any way I can recover my data from formatted Bitlocker encrypted drive?

Some common data recovery software (Such as EaseUS Data Recovery) which declare that it can recover data from formatted Bitlocker encrypted drive, but actually it doesn't have the function to decrypt data from Bitlocker encrypted drive.
