Hello yousafali, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to use step 2 in the tutorial below with your BitLocker password to recover your BitLocker drive.

yousafali,

You just made a small mistake in the command. For your drive letters, you should use this command below instead. The F at the end of the command needs to remain an F. Only the red letters in the tutorial are to be substituted with the drive letters.

repair-bde H: G: -pw -F

The same result with

>repair-bde H: G: -pw -F

Bitlocker Drive Encryption: Repair Tool version 6.1.7600
Copy Right<C> Microsoft Corporation.

Invalid Syntax Error. Use "repair-bde -?" for correct usage

In that case, post a screenshot showing the full layout of your G: drive to see if it is able to be used to save the contents of the H: drive locked by BitLocker to.

G: is system drive, and you will not be able to use G to copy the decrypted contents of H to. Plus, I doubt that G: would be large enough to hold H: even if you were able to.

You'll need to use another drive like E: or another external hard drive instead. Be warned that whatever you use will be wiped out in the process when saving the decrypted files from H: to it.

Here "I" is is my encrypted disk and "H" is the disk to copy decrypted data.

The problem is that the -pw switch for the repair-bde command is only available in Windows 8.

You might see if you may be able to use step 2 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below instead.
