help from bitlocker recovey key RRS feed

Answers

  • Is this on your personal workstation, or a company owned device?  If this is an a company workstation, ask the system administrator for the key.  If this is your personal device, you would have needed to make a backup of the recovery key itself.  This would have been printed, saved to a USB key, or your OneDrive account.  If none of these options are available, there is nothing anyone here can help you with, and you will need to reset/re-image your PC.

  • Hi rahul,

    Bitlocker recovery key should be backuped during the Bitlocker setup, which should be well noticed by oneself, for personal usage (not domain-joined).

    If for multiple Recovery password (specially in AD), then the recovery key should be stored into AD DS, and the better way to find out the Recovery key is to contact your system IT admin.

    Since the password ID is a unique value that is associated with each recovery password stored in AD DS, running a query using this ID will find the correct password to unlock the encrypted volume.

    And if you would like to find it out on your own, then check:

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd759200(v=ws.11).aspx

    To locate a recovery password          
    1. In Active Directory Users and Computers, right-click the domain container, and then click Find BitLocker Recovery Password.

    2. In the Find BitLocker Recovery Password dialog box, type the first eight characters of the recovery password in the Password ID (first 8 characters) box, and then click Search.

    Regards
