OUCH! Hello jintho Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Post #12 on one thread seen at Help with lost password. has a few password recovery tools if they will work for this.

The usual end result seen when forgetting a password for an encrpted drive however is simply to reformat the drive to see it made available again at the cost of the data on it. The other thread I can point you to however dealt with the same problem of being locked out of your drive once encrpted. Help with Bitlocker

This is why people write their passwords on post-its which they then stick to the edges of their monitors.

In all seriousness though, it may have been prudent to keep the password somewhere on your person (e.g. in your wallet) for emergencies like this. Welcome to the forums, and good luck.

Drive encryption is risky business to start with since data can end up being lost through a failed process where things end up being corrupted and unusable. For something like this where you have sensitive or simply unreplacable files, data, etc. you should always pick out a paasword you can easily remember.

There is one other option I came across suitable for this type of problem. How to Use the BitLocker Recovery Password Viewer

Here's another MS TechNet reference that will need a little effort. Simply follow the instructions seen at
