Bitlocker won't recognize my recovery key RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello everyone,

    I am experiencing some issues with my external hard drive. I've decided to encrypt it using bitlocker. We're talking about a 2TB hard drive. The process requested for a password and i have been provided with a recovery key. At around 90% the process blocked/stoped. It started to affect my PC performace. 

    Suddenly, there was no longer a progress bar so that i could see how much i had to wait. I've been requested to provide directly my recovery key( not the password) so that i could unlock the drive . I kindda panicked..and reinstalled the OS. 

    The sad part, altough i have the original message that i got from the drive when i started to encrypt it with the full recovery key, it says its incorrect. 

    I've performed several test using CMD and all the avaiable commands i could find on the internet, but with no luck.

    Have you managed to to get by from such a scenario?
