bitlocker messed up my files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed Windows 7 x86 and I started bitlocker to encrypt one of my partitions but after about 10 seconds I cancelled the encryption.

    Then I saw that some of my documents had .axx extension and I wasn't able to decrypt them. I downloaded a decrypter for axx files but it asks for a password. I never entered a password when bitlocker started to encrypt my drive.

    What cand I do to recover my files? They are very important to me.

    Please help me...
