RECOVER BITLOCKER PASSWORD
Today I would like to share an issue our customer got trouble.
What will you do if you forgot the BitLocker password?
Before finding the solutions, we’d better learn about BitLocker.
BitLocker is a proprietary encryption program offered by Microsoft on some of its versions of the Windows operating system. It is available to users with:
The Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7
The Pro and Enterprise editions of Windows 8 and 8.1
The Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions of Windows 10 installed on their computer
It is easy to use and can encrypt your hard drive and protect against malware attacking your system’s firmware or attempting to make other unauthorized changes without a noticeable slowdown.
How to recover BitLocker password as you have forgotten?
Many must think we should reset the PC of our computer, but this causes loss of data. I don’t recommend this way because there is some critical data stored on the drive that you absolutely have to be able to access. What are your another option if you cannot unlock your drive normally? There are some ways which you can select and perform one of these options below to get BitLocker recovery key
Option 1: In you Microsoft account: Sign in to your Microsoft account on another device to find your recovery key in OneDrive
Option 2: In your TXT File: Double click on “This PC” to open “File Explorer” then enter BitLocker Recovery Key in search bar. After that, Windows will discover automatically this file. This way could not be applied as for installing BitLocker on C hard drive
Option 3: On a USB flash drive: Plug the USB flash drive into your locked PC or another computer-> Double click on “This PC” to open “File Explorer”, then open USB drive and find the file namely BitLocker Recovery Key.
Option 4: Held by your system administrator: If your device is connected to a domain, ask a system administrator for your recovery key.
