recovering data from partially encrypted drive



i used bitlocker to encrypt, the process didnt get more than 10% done before failing, the result is a partially encrypted drive that is locked ( password and recovery key wont work) i need a program that will help retrieve the remaining data that is not encrypted.

Try using "Recuva" - see free program list. First do a normal scan then a deep scan if required. A deep scan can take quite quite some time.
