Windows 7 Bitlocker Error "bitlocker drive encryption failed to recover from an abruptly terminated conversion"

    Question

  • Hi , 

    I locked my external hard disk (Seagate- 1 TB) on Windows 7 laptop . The encryption was successful but when I later tried unlocking it, Its giving an error. Error says "bitlocker drive encryption failed to recover from an abruptly terminated conversion". Please note that the Password and Recovery Key are correct and I have tried unlocking it several times but no success.

    Upon searching on internet, I came across the below thread which I yet need to try. Pray that it gets unlocked as I have got very important data locked up and the drive volume is also 80-90% filled.

    Please help me out experts to get my data back.<o:p></o:p>
