    According to your description, I guess you can’t unlock your disk after reinstall OS. We could try to repair it by use CMD command.

    Please press “Win + R”, type “CMD” in the search box. If you know the recovery key, using the CMD command below.

    “manage-bde-unlock E: -RecoveryPassword{…}” (“E” refers to the drive letter)

    If it doesn’t work, the BitLocker files could damaged when you format the c driver. I’m sorry that you may have to look for Data recovery center to get your data back.

    Hope it will be helpful to you.
