Help unlocking bitlocker encrypted partitions on system drive
I put bitlocker encryption on my windows drive and on additional data partitions on the same drive.
I have been able to use windows without entering a password for the system drive, and have just been prompted for password when accessing the other partitions.
Recently, I had to dissemble my laptop and after I put it back together, I was prompted for the recovery key. Unfortunately, I do not have the recovery keys anymore; I only know the password I created for unlocking the drives. I've read other posts stating that I cannot unlock the encryption on the os drive without the recovery key.
My question is... Can I recover the data off the data partitions on the same drive, with the password or is the data lost forever?
I was hoping I could access the drive partitions from another computer running Windows 7, by using the password.
