Recover Data from Formatted Bitlocker Encrypted Data Partition

I unintentionally formatted a data disk containing a lot of crucial information. When I used a recovery program, I discovered that Bitlocker had encrypted all of the data into massive SWF files. How can I get these files back from my encrypted, formatted partition?

Obviously, you don't remember your Bitlocker password, and without the password, you cannot recover data from your encrypted partition with software. There are four ways to get back your lost Bitlocker recovery key:

1. To locate your recovery key, log in to your Microsoft account using a different device. The recovery key will probably be in your Microsoft account if you have a contemporary device that enables automated device encryption.

2. You can run as administrator or ask a system administrator for your recovery key if you use BitLocker encryption and your device is linked to a domain.

3. You can verify your USB drive or printout if you have the recovery key saved on a USB flash drive or have printed it when BitLocker was enabled.

4. The BitLocker disk may be accessed using the regular password if you can't remember the password. So you can try your regular password to have a try.

After getting back your Bitlocker recovery key, you can choose a data recovery tool to recover your encrypted partition. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a good choice.

1. When you open EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, the BitLocker encrypted disk will be visible. A pop-up window will appear when you click on the encrypted partition, prompting you to input a password to unlock it. Enter the key, then select "Scan" to search for lost files.

2. The program will launch a rapid scan for missing files and run a thorough search for more lost data. Once the operation is finished, you may use the "Filter" option or the "Search files or folders" button to locate the deleted files quickly.

3. Click the "Recover" button after examining the file to recover deleted or lost files from a Windows BitLocker-protected drive.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
