I have a USB flash drive encrypted with BitLocker Drive Encryption, which stores some important files. Recently I bought a MAC computer, I need to access this USB drive on my MAC computer, and when I connect it to my MAC, my MAC doesn't seem to be able to access it. After I got back to Windows, I found out that this drive was using exFat, and is that why MAC can't access it?

ExFat and BitLocker are effective means for Widnows users to store and protect user data. When we format a larger USB drive, many users may not notice that Windows will format it using exFat by default. The MAC operating system supports access to the exFat drive by default, but when the exFat drive is encrypted with BitLocker, then MAC operating system will not be able to access it because MAC operating system does not support BitLocker driver encryption. We now know why the MAC cannot access the BitLocker encrypted exFat drive. Is there a way to access a BitLocker encrypted exFat drive on MAC computers?
