Hard Drive Encryption Issue RRS feed

  • Question


    This is in regard to hard drive encryption issues in my USB Hard drive. I have Windows 7. I was encrypting my USB hard drive and was able to enter a password. However, I did not receive any prompt to save the Bitlocker recovery key.  During encryption process, I received an error. The encryption process was unsuccessful. However, now when I plug-in the hard drive, I receive the following message on the status bar:

    Application and Device Control rule Block writing to removable media. Unencrypted drive found (No_Encrypted_Found) has blocked edpa.exe trying to access Volume {e3901a75-f1ff-11e1-817c-806e6f6e6963 alpha-numeric number appearing here}

    When I try to open the drive, it asks for a password. When I enter the password, I am receiving the following error message:

    Bitlocker Drive Encryption failed to recover from an abruptly terminated conversion. This could be due to either all conversion logs being corrupted or the media being write-protected.

    I have read that Bitlocker repair tool can help resolve this issue. However, I just have the password that I had set to encrypt the drive and Bitlocker recovery key identification. Can this help to get access to my hard drive data  using the Bitlocker tool.
