I have an external disk that is encrypted by BitLocker under Windows, and I recently purchased a MacBook Pro, unfortunately I can't access this BitLocker encrypted drive in Mac OS. Please help me, how do I access BitLocker encrypted drives in Mac?
I have to say that the BitLocker encrypted drive cannot be accessed directly in Mac operating system. Why? This is because the BitLocker drive encryption algorithm is a proprietary algorithm developed by Microsoft for the Windows operating system, and the Mac operating system does not provide support for reading and writing BitLocker encrypted drives. To access a BitLockr drive in Mac, we have to use a third-party BitLocker solution for Mac, such as Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere For Mac.
Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere For Mac is a simple and easy-to-use software designed primarily to access BitLocker encrypted erives in Mac. With this software, you can easily mount a BitLocker drive and then read and write the drive as securely as you read and write to a Mac's native drive.
Step 1. Download, install and run Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere For Mac.
Step 2. Right-click the BitLocker encrypted drive you want to access in main window, then click "Mount drive".
Step 3. Enter the password or recovery key, then click "Mount" button to mount the drive.
Step 4. After the operation completes successfully, the drive has been successfully mounted and you can see an icon of the driver appearing on your Mac's desktop.
Step 5. Click on the icon on your Mac's desktop to open the drive, now you can access the BitLocker encrypted drive like a Mac's native drive, such as read, write, copy, delete files, etc.
As mentioned above, with the help of Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere For Mac, you can easily access the BitLocker encrypted drives in macOS & Mac OS X. Whether you're using Mac Mini, Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air or imac, the software is the best choice for you.
