remove bitlocker. I have a drive with windows 10 PRO that has BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    Question

  •  The windows 10 Pro computer has died, and I would like to put the in my new computer with windows 10 home.   I would like to remove the bit locker password,  so I can reinstall windows 10 pro while keeping my files and apps,   I'm unable to do this while the drive is encrypted.  How do I remove drive encryption from the drive while I have the drive slaved to a windows 10 home computer?

  • Hi nbstan,

    Is it available to get into the Bitlocker with the password or the recovery key?

    We could turn off it here if we could unolck it.
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\BitLocker Drive Encryption

    If we have forgotten the password and the recovery key, I am afraid we will lost the data forever.

    Best regards
