The bitlocker encrypted drive won't get unlocked?! repair-bde?


  • Hey.

    I encrypted my usb 500gb external diskdrive with Bitlocker. I did that last week and haven't tested the disk yet. I plugged into my computer today and entered my password but the bitlocker program just hanged... I tried DOS commands and DOS hanged.. I have also tried with different computers. I have also tried to open it with the key.

    Anyway. Today I started repair-bde by typing this:

    repair-bde F: D:\image.img -rp XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXx-XXXXx-XXXXXXX-XXXX -f -lf c:\repair.txt

    It seems like it's stuck on 14%. I will let it continue over night to see what will happend..

    Any other ideas how to extract the data from the disk??

    I use bitlocker on 5 other drives without having this problem before :(

    The decryption is now 100% completed. How to mount the .img file? And with what software?

  • Hi bigdrago

    you can mount image files with daemon tools on windows 7, and windows 8 comes with a image mounting tool. You can also browse the content of image file with ultraiso. Ultraiso also offer the option of writing the image back to the disk, which i think could be useful for you.
