How to Recover Data From a Disk Encrypted by Bitlocker. Data Recovery.


Today we will describe the procedure of data recovery from a damaged disk encrypted by Bitlocker. Such problem may emerge as a result of damage to the file system of an encrypted disk (for example, damage to the area of the hard disk, where BitLocker stores important data, that happens due to unexpected system shutdown), inability to load OS or BitLocker recovery console, and other similar errors that prevent normal opening of the encrypted disk. The described problems may affect both system disk,portable external drive or USB drive.

In order to recover data we will use the utility Repair-bde (BitLocker Repair Tool), a command prompt utility which appeared back in Windows 7 / 2008 R2. This utility is used for access and recovery of encrypted data in a damaged disk encrypted by BitLocker.
Warning. This procedure should be applied after all the others have failed, and it was impossible to unlock the encrypted disk in a standard way by using a Bitlocker password or recovery key.

Requirements for data recovery from a BitLocker volume

To recover data from a disk encrypted by BitLocker you need to have at least one of the following Bitlocker defense elements:
  • BitLocker recovery password;
  • Recovery key;
  • System startup key (Startup key - .bek).
Data will be recovered to a separate disk the size of which should be no less than the size of the damaged disk. In the course of recovery, all contents of this disk will be deleted and replaced by decrypted data from the Bitlocker volume.
In our example, disk E: (size 2 Gb) is a USB drive the contents of which are encrypted by BitLocker, and which cannot be opened for some reason. To recover data, we have installed an additional external disk F: (size 16 Gb).

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-9.png

Method 1. Data recovery with the use of a BitLocker password

In the first place, try recovering data with this method (it will work with Windows 8 / 2012 and newer versions):
  • Launch command prompt as administrator.
  • Execute the command:
    repair-bde E: F: -pw -Force
    where E: - disk with Bitlocker data, F: - disk where decrypted data should be extracted.
  • In the course of executing the command you will have to specify BitLocker password (the same which a user is to enter into UI when trying to access an encrypted volume).

  • http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-2.png

Method 2. Decryption of a Bitlocker volume with a recovery key

For decryption of data located in a damaged volume which is encrypted with Bitlocker we will need a recovery key or a system startup key (if the system partition is encrypted).
Advice. BitLockerRecoveryKey is a unique sequence of 48 symbols. The recovery key is generated when a Bitlocker volume is created; it can be printed, saved as a text file to a local (this choice is not recommended) or external disk, or in a user account at Microsoft website.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0.png

Now let us launch data recovery with the help of this key:
repair-bde E: F: -rp 011407-712393-682121-100210-377003-405174-520014-328130 -Force
If Bitlocker is used for encryption of the system partition containing Windows, and for loading the system a special startup key on a USB drive is used, the encrypted volume can be decrypted as follows:
repair-bde E: F: -rk I:\3F558473-943D-4330-8449-62C36BA53345.BEK -Force
where file 3F558473-943D-4330-8449-62C36BA53345.BEK is a key to launch BitLocker disk encryption on a USB drive G: (by default, this file is hidden).
After the procedure of data recovery and decryption, before opening the disk where the contents of the Bitlocker volume were extracted, it is necessary to run its check. In order to do it, execute the following command and wait until it is complete:
Chkdsk F: /f
Important note. If you failed to recover data from an encrypted disk with the described methods, it is worth trying to create a sector-by-sector copy of the damaged disk with the help of a Linux utility DDRescue (or any other similar utility). After that, try recovering data from the received copy by the following scenario.

Data Recovery Software

We also should notice that exist more common and simpler way to recover files from Bitlocker encrypted storage. These are data recovery software. Of course, not all programs ?an cope in such situation but some of them have required function.
The only thing is that you must have a password to unlock the device which was specified when encrypt.
Then it's simple. Connecting device with the information that you want to recover to your computer and getting message.
Further, enter password in a special window after double-clicking on the device you need to recover in "This PC".
After that, the storage becomes fully accessible for data recovery for any of the Hetman Software programs.

Cant remember my original password


If its for a windows pc...you may want to consider a password reset disk if you have one...or if you set a hint...use it to try to remember. If all else fails you might want to reinstall windows using a reinstallation disk which you can boot from startup. Once booted...you can choose to install a new copy of windows. Follow the install procedure...install to a disk with reasonable space and wait for it to complete. Then proceed to download and utilize a windows activator..which removes the windows license activation process.

Reset acer 4810t




You can start the Recovery from outside windows by holding down the ALT key and tapping F10 repeatedly
on startup. When the recovery loads you will be prompted for a password.


This should have been set by the customer if they have been into the Acer Recovery Management software previously.


If they have forgotten the password or you wish to clear the password you need to boot off the recovery disk that should have been created.

More Information

From the Acer toolbar at the top of the desktop click on the disk icon

Setup a password if requested.

After clicking on setup you need to click Create Password to continue.

Create a password and add a password hint (strongly recommended).
You now have the option of restoring from a previous Windows Vista backup or you can start the Acer recovery process.

The recovery is started by clicking Restore at the bottom of the window.

Further types of recovery are now presented.

Choose Restore system to factory default if you wish to run the hard drive based recovery and return your Acer computer back to it's original factory default state.

Note: The factory default recovery will wipe ALL data from the computer so ensure important data has been saved to disk before proceeding.

Enter the password that was previously set.

Confirm you wish to run the recovery process.

After confirming you wish to run the recovery process the computer will restart and restore all the original files
Complete the Out of Box Experience when prompted


After a couple of restarts the computer will run through restoring the preinstalled software that came with your computer and then be ready to use


hope this helps

AVG 7 detecdted Virus Hurri on partition table. How do I remove ?


You will need to fix the master boot record with the Windows XP Recovery Console. To do this, you will need a Windows XP install CD.

Here are the steps to use the recovery console:

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

In this instance, the correct commands are:

c:\fixmbr
c:\fixboot
The type exit after finishing then remove the Original OS CD.
The machine will reboot properly.

This will fix your boot sector

And All should be well
