Can we assume that you dont have a backup?

How important are the missing files? (games, documents,etc).

You have several problems.
1-a disk problem
2-bitlocker
3-encryption

I dont think (short of a commercial recovery business.) you are going to be able to recover them.

If you still wish to try stop using that HD NOW.

Do you have another computer?
