Unlock Bitlocker encrypted drive

BitLocker is a full drive encryption. It was first introduced in Windows Vista and is aimed to protect your data even if someone has physical access to your PC or laptop.

BitLocker encrypts all files on a drive, including those needed for startup. So its content is invisible to the system. In order to unlock the drive and get access to its content, you should use one of the following unprotection methods:

  • Unlock the drive with volume unlock password
  • Unlock using recovery (numerical) password
  • Unlock using the external recovery key
  • Unlock using Bitlocker certificate

Just select your BitLocker-encrypted drive along with required unlock type and click << UNLOCK >> button to decrypt it. The operation takes several seconds.

To extract BitLocker recovery passwords from Active Directory, you can use our Windows Password Recovery tool.
