I might wish to ask to your assist concerning a BitLocker drive corruption subject. I’m going to jot down down the steps that brought about the issue that can assist you perceive what occurred.
- I saved some knowledge from a 320GB laborious drive, and formatted it. It’s NOT the Bitlocker drive, and it’s unencrypted.
- I shut down the pc, disconnected the 320GB laborious drive, then plugged within the encrypted 1TB drive which was functioning nicely earlier than that.
- Began up home windows, and observed the encrypted 1TB drive was being displayed because the formatted and empty 320GB drive.
- I restarted the machine and plugged the sata cable to a different sata port. Home windows now sees that the drive is encryped, however says that the disk construction is corrupted and it’s unreadable. The lock icon is gray and there’s no measurement or another knowledge current.
The drive is recognised within the Handle BitLocker Drives menu, and the drive is recognised within the Home windows Partition Supervisor too. If i decrypt the drive, does it makes any sense or simply makes issues worse? I didn’t do something moreover plugging the drive in and making an attempt to open it. The encrypted drive has just one partition.
Is it potential to recuperate the information? Ought to i take advantage of the ‘repair-bde’ command? Or use some third-party instruments? How dangerous may the injury be?
