BitLocker Data Recovery

Your data recovery experts in Australia

 

A login password alone can’t protect your data in case of a physical theft, which is why full volume encryption using tools like BitLocker is now considered to be one of the most important cybersecurity best practices. But encryption can be a double-edged sword because it can stop not just the bad guys but also legitimate users. First introduced in Windows Vista (released in January 2007), BitLocker is a full volume encryption feature that has since then been included with every version of the Windows operating system.

The purpose of this feature is to allow users to easily encrypt entire volumes of data, such as the system drive, using a strong encryption algorithm. In fact, BitLocker uses the same encryption that many military and government organizations do, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

When you enable BitLocker encryption, all data on the encrypted volume turn into a seemingly random digital noise. To access them again, you need to first authenticate yourself to unlock the drive, typically by providing the correct password.

Data decryption is then done on the fly with little to no measurable performance impact, making BitLocker encryption, not just effective but also convenient.

Common BitLocker Data Recovery Scenarios

Based on our experience, we’ve identified the following five common BitLocker data recovery scenarios:

BitLocker data recovery performed by Wildfire Data Recovery Brisbane.
 

Scenario #1: Recover a BitLocker drive with a known password

  • Situation: You’ve deleted a file from a drive that is encrypted using BitLocker, and you now want to recover this file.

  • Solution: All you need to do is enter the right BitLocker password to unlock the drive and recover the deleted files from the Recycle Bin. If the Recycle Bin folder has already been emptied, then you can use data recovery software to get your files back.

 

Scenario #2: Recover data from a BitLocker-encrypted computer that’s locked at boot

  • Situation: You would like to recover data stored on your system drive, but you’re unable to get to them because your computer is locked at boot, and you don’t know your BitLocker password.

 

  • Solution: Fortunately, BitLocker requires users to save their recovery key someplace safe during the initial setup, so the chances are that your key is just a few clicks away. Here’s where you should look for it:

    • 💿 Backup storage devices: Many users choose to save their BitLocker recovery key as a text file. Go through your backup drives and look for a file called something like “BitLocker Recovery Key 4C4F0CD2-9523-4BE8-BB80-CFAAD2494D7B”.

    • 📄 Computer-related documents: Instead of saving the recovery key in a digital form, and potentially exposing it to hackers, you can also print it on a piece of paper. If you have a binder or drawer dedicated solely to computer-related documents, there’s a chance that you’ll be able to find your key there.

    • ☁ Your Microsoft account: Modern devices that support automatic device encryption save the recovery key in the associated Microsoft account. Sign in to your Microsoft accounton another device and attempt to retrieve your recovery key.

Have you managed to find your BitLocker recovery key? Great! Now you can press Esc on the BitLocker boot screen and enter it to unlock your computer. You can now recover your data just like you would normally (see Scenario #1).

If your BitLocker recovery key is nowhere to be found, then we have bad news: regaining access to your computer is possible only by formatting the encrypted system drive and starting from scratch OR by contacting a professional data recovery business, like Wildfire Data Recovery Brisbane.

 

We can prevent the loss of your data by using special techniques and methods to "crack" the encryption and recover the data on your hard drive. 

 

Scenario #3: Recover files from a BitLocker-protected secondary storage device

  • Situation: You want to recover files stored on a secondary storage device (a non-system hard drive or a USB flash drive), but you can’t because the storage device is encrypted using BitLocker.

  • Solution: Before you can recover a BitLocker-encrypted storage device using a data recovery application like Disk Drill, you need to unlock it first. Windows should prompt you to enter the correct BitLocker password when you connect the storage device to your computer, but you can also unlock it manually:

  1. Open the Start menu and type “control panel”.

  2. Launch the Control Panel app.

  3. Go to System and Security > BitLocker Drive Encryption.

  4. Click the Unlock drive button and enter your BitLocker password.

Scenario #4: Recover data from a corrupted or failed BitLocker drive

  • Situation: Your BitLocker drive has become corrupted after experiencing a critical failure. As a result, you can’t access your files.

  • Solution: Aware that scenarios like this are bound to happen, Microsoft developed a BitLocker recovery tool, called repair-bde. This tool is included in Windows, and it attempts to reconstruct critical parts of a severely damaged drive and salvage recoverable data. To work, the BitLocker recovery tool needs a valid recovery password or recovery key for decryption. Because repair-bde doesn’t have a graphical user interface, you need to invoke it from Windows PowerShell, like this:

OUR RECOVERY SUCCESS

What’s your success rate?

  • It’s one of the most common questions a data recovery company will be asked. Unfortunately data recovery is not a regulated industry so there are many interpretations of ‘success rate’ and a huge number of varying claims. 

  • Some companies define ’success’ as the ability to read any amount of data from your failed drive (which may not contain any useful data), and others will exclude unrecoverable cases from their statistics.

  • When it comes to data recovery, every case is unique and while many customers will enjoy a full recovery, some are inevitably unrecoverable.
