Windows 7: Bitlocker Help

06 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 8.1 - 64 Bit
Bitlocker Help

I encrypted my external HDD with bitlocker on my desktop PC. Last night, I tried to unlock drive but instead I removed password. Now whenever I connect it to my PC, it asks for recovery key which I don't have.

Is there any way to get access to the drive without formatting/losing my data.

I have tried following command which will give you list of protectors for volume.

>manage-bde -protectors -get d:

Now I don't know which one to use from list. Any help will be highly appreciated.
