BitLocker-locked HDD in enclosure after damaged computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I accidentally spilled a glass of water over my Lenovo Thinkpad X240 and the computer is stone dead. However, I would like to get back my information from the SSD drive in it. 

    So my question is; since the drive is encrypted with BitLocker - how do I get the data back? Would it work if I put it in an enclosure? Or how would i else do to get the data back? 

    Of course I have the BitLocker encryption key available.

    Thanks a lot!

  • Ok, solved.

    I just bought an external enclosure, put the drive in it, connected it to another computer, a window popped up saying "Provide your BitLocker recovery key", put it in, now all data is available.
