For security reasons, I've been using BitLocker to encrypt the data partition. Recently I accidentally deleted some important files from this partition, I immediately stopped using this partition and tried to recover the data using data recovery software. I've tried several popular data recovery software that claims to recover data from BitLocker encrypted partition, but none of them helped me recover the deleted files. What I want to know is, is it possible to recover data from a BitLocker encrypted partition in Windows 8?
As an encryption tool in Windows 8 to protect important data, BitLocker Drive Encryption is really safe and effective, but it increases the difficulty of recovering data after losing data. Almost all traditional data recovery software cannot handle a BitLocker encrypted partition, although they claim to support it. Fortunately, the BitLocker encryption data recovery algorithm unique to Hasleo Data Recovery can help users recover data from a BitLocker encrypted partition in Windows 8.

3. Hasleo Data Recovery will list all found BitLocker encrypted partitions on the target device. If you have entered the password or BitLocker recovery key in the previous step, the password status will show whether the password or BitLocker recovery key matches this partition.
4. After the deleted or lost Bitlocker encrypted partition is found, double click it. If you have previously entered the password or BitLocker recovery key and the the password or recovery key matches, Hasleo Data Recovery will start scanning lost files.

There will be a list of files found by the software, you can preview found files by path and types. Select the files you want to recover and click "Recover" button to save them.
