    For recovery i used many software such as ontrack easy recover, get data back, recovery my files professional edition but still i couldnt able to recover my data from that drive. then i found some suggestion Using CMD to decrypt my data first 

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee523219(WS.10).aspx

    where it shows it successfully decrypt my data at that moment my drives were in RAW format excluding on which windows is installed and then in CMD i check Chdsk which also shows no problem found. but now problem is still i coudnt able to recover my data then i format the drive D and again tried to recover data using above software after decryption still no result. 

    Now i need assistance how i can recover my encrypted drive as it was partitioned and also formatted but decrypted also as i have its recovery key too. thanks

  • Hi ,

    I am afraid that we cannot get the data back if the drive has been formatted even if use the BitLocker Repair Tool.

    You’d better contact your local data recovery center to try to get data back.

  • Actually you can recover data from formatted hard drive after formatting and it is easy for you to do so. But one thing you need to make sure is that your original data did not be overwritten by the new data or you may not use the software but use the hard drive mood to fix your problem. This method will cost you a lot no matter money or time. For the easy way to solve your problem, you may try this software called Windows Data Recovery Tool to see if it works for you.
