BitLocker won't open drive.

    Question

  • When I double click on the locked (BitLocker) drive I get a "Not Accessable" pop up. The pop up doesn't open to allow me to enter my password. And if I right click , and then click on unlock . Nothing happens . No pop up to allow me to enter password. If I go to control panel - bit-locker - and choose a drive , then click unlock , nothing happens. Any one know how to work around this problem

  • Before you use repair-bde command, check if you can unlock a drive using manage-bde command.

    >manage-bde -unlock D: -pw

    where D is the drive letter

    We will prompt you to enter the password.

    If it fails, get the error message.

    Alos get the outpout of this command.

    >manage-bde -protectors -get D:

    where D is the drive letter.
