Unlock Bitlocker encrypted drive

BitLocker uses full drive encryption technology to keep your data private. It was first introduced in Windows Vista and is aimed to protect your files 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 a 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 the required unlock type and click the << UNLOCK >> button to decrypt it. The operation takes several seconds.

To get a BitLocker recovery password stored in a domain, click the 'Extract BitLocker passwords from Active Directory' link and follow the program's instructions.
