How to recover data from a inaccessible BitLocker encrypted drive?

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

Why does a BitLocker encrypted drive become inaccessible? There are many reasons that can lead to this problem. The most common of these conditions are virus attacks, abnormal shutdown of the computer, and unplugging a USB drive without a secure eject. The root cause is that the file system on the drive is corrupted and Windows cannot parse the file system correctly. When you click on such a drive, Windows will prompt you "D:\ is not accessible. Access is denied.". When this happens, many users think they have lost all the files on the drive. In fact, these files are not lost, they still exist on your drive, just can't be accessed by Windows. Since the files still exist on the drive, you may try to recover these files using data recovery software, and I have to say that you have taken the right step. Nevertheless, I still have to remind you that recovering data from a BitLocker encrypted inaccessible drive is much more difficult than recovering data from a non-encrypted drive. After you try many data recovery software, you will find that none of them can recover data from the inaccessible BitLocker encrypted drive, this is because all the data on the drive is already encrypted with BitLocker, and the normal data software is unable to decrypt the bitlcoker encrypted data.
