How to recover data from formatted BitLocker encrypted drive?

Updated on May 7, 2019 by Admin to BitLocker Data Recovery Software

I have formatted my BitLocker protected drive accidentally. I'm a software test engineer, there are many partitions on my computer because of the need for work, and I've encrypted some of them with BitLocker. In preparing a new working environment, I mistakenly chose a BitLocker partition, which is now formatted as NTFS. This partition contains some important files I have to get them back. Can I recover data from formatted BitLocker encrypted drive? Can anyone help me please?

There are two types of hard disk formatting possibilities, low and high level formating. High level formatting is the widely known formatting that erases data on the disks while low level formatting nowadays refers to the reinitialization to the factory settings. One of the major differences between both types is that data can successfully be recovered after performing a high level formatting of a hard drive, but the data cannot be recovered after performing a low level formatting. Luckily, the formatting we often talk about is often high level format, such as using Windows built-in tools to format partitions or using third-party software to format partitions.

So the answer to the question 'Can I recover data from formatted BitLocker encrypted drive?' is YES, and you've come to the right place. In order to successfully recover data from BitLocker encrypted drives, you have to use a professional BitLocker data Recovery software. And this article mainly discusses how to recover data from a formatted BitLocker drive with professional BitLocker data Recovery Software Hasleo BitLocker Data Recovery.
