Posted by Tim to Bitlocker Recovery on April 1st, 2020

I have a partition that is encrypted with Bitlocker. The partition was accidentally deleted. How do I recover deleted Bitlocker encrypted partition so that I can continue to unlock it using my bitlocker password? I have used data/partition recovery software such as MiniTool Partition Master, EFS Recovery, they are not able to detect the bitlocker encrypted partition. Therefore, not able to recover the deleted partition. Is there any software which can recover deleted Bitlocker encrypted partition?
