  • Hi,

    What is the exact error message you have got? Have you enabled the Bitlocker on a Windows 10 machine?

    We could use Repair-bde command tool to reconstruct critical parts of the drive and salvage recoverable data when your Bitlocker corrupted.
    If you want to repair drive N and write the content from drive N to drive D, we could type password to unlock drive N: when prompted “repair-bde N: D: -pw”.

    However if your external hard drive damaged, I am afraid we would lost the data forever.

    Best regards,
