Can't use bitlocker encrypted hard disk.

Hi,
I have problem with my external hard disk. I entered correct password, but it says encryption failed. The system i used to set bitlocker is no longer use and i don't have the recovery key. So is there anyway to get my hdd back??
Sorry for my English and thanks in advance.

Hi,

If the password doesn't work, and the recovery key is lost then there is no way to unlock this drive - bitlocker has no back door.

Regards,
