I tried another tool which works for me but isn't quite as convenient as your tool "M3 Bitlocker Loader for Mac v6.2".

Yesterday I tried HasleoBitLockerAnywhere but this tool, strange, it unlock the disk but the disk works only in the Finder, while in another filing tools like pathFinder, ForkLift etc. it doesn't permit to write files. Your utility "M3 Bitlocker Loader for Mac v6.0" works very well compared to the other.
