I found an workaround to my previous problem. Restart didn't work, but shutdown instead of restart did the trick, the only problem is that the employees have to shut down instead of restart.

Hello Shaimaa, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Was this for another internal HDD or your Windows 7 HDD?

If it's for a Windows 7 HDD, then you're out of luck and will most likely have to format the HDD to be able to use the HDD again. This will of course result in losing everything on the HDD.

If this is for another internal HDD, then you might see if you may be able to repeat steps 10 and 11 in OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to Save or print recovery key again to use to unlock it with.

Sorry, but not with a drive that has been encrypted with BitLocker. Without that password or recovery key, it's a lost cause.
