Open Computer on the desktop, right-click on the encrypted disk, click on Unlock Drive.

Click on "I forgot my password" link below the password box.

Click on "Type the recovery key".

Next it will ask you to type in your BitLocker recovery key. Open the file that you save the BitLocker Recovery Key, and copy the BitLocker Recovery Key.

Go back to the BitLocker Drive Encryption dialog, paste the BitLocker recovery key on the text box, and then click on Next.

Tips: The drive is unlocked temporary, but it will be locked again if you remove it or turn off your computer.

Click "Manage BitLocker" to change your unlocking password or method.

Click on "Change password to unlock the drive".

Enter and reenter the new password, click on Next.

Click on "Save or print recovery key again", and save the bitlocker recovery key to a file.

Tips: Make sure the Bitlocker recovery key file is saved safely that can't be seen by others, but found by you easily. Highly recommend you do not save the recovery key file name as Bitlocker recovery key, which can be found by others easily.

It's always a chance. It's hard but possible. It's will depend on what type of encryption is used and how did you "broke" the drive. If in some recovery service they say they can't do it , you should try at least few more, because I know for sure that it is possible . This guys definitely can do it - www.datarecovery.net - look, maybe there is office in your town.

I m giving you answer as i got from the live agent earlier when i was looking for same service
from
http://www.ontrackdatarecovery.com/data-recovery-services/
TraciB: We do our recoveries in two phases, first an evaluation and then the recovery.
TraciB: During the evaluation we determine what is wrong with the drive as well as what we need to do in order to access the data.
TraciB: The fee for this is $100.
TraciB: Upon completion I would send you a detailed file listing showing every file we can recover as well as the condition of each file.
TraciB: At that point I would also be able to give you the firm price for the recovery, which would be between $400 and 1800, depending on the severity of the damage to the drive.
TraciB: Average turnaround time for our standard service is 4 business days, but we do offer faster services if it’s something time sensitive for you.


Now before going any further to pay for it plz ensure that you have tried following steps

go to control panel >administrative tool>computer management and finally the disk management
and see is there any unrecognized device try to assign drive letter and restart
i hope this may fix your problem
Thanks And Regards

Well, in your case the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software.

First of ALL - Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.

Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem!

How to Recover Data From a Disk Encrypted by Bitlocker. Data Recovery.


Today we will describe the procedure of data recovery from a damaged disk encrypted by Bitlocker. Such problem may emerge as a result of damage to the file system of an encrypted disk (for example, damage to the area of the hard disk, where BitLocker stores important data, that happens due to unexpected system shutdown), inability to load OS or BitLocker recovery console, and other similar errors that prevent normal opening of the encrypted disk. The described problems may affect both system disk,portable external drive or USB drive.

In order to recover data we will use the utility Repair-bde (BitLocker Repair Tool), a command prompt utility which appeared back in Windows 7 / 2008 R2. This utility is used for access and recovery of encrypted data in a damaged disk encrypted by BitLocker.
Warning. This procedure should be applied after all the others have failed, and it was impossible to unlock the encrypted disk in a standard way by using a Bitlocker password or recovery key.

Requirements for data recovery from a BitLocker volume

To recover data from a disk encrypted by BitLocker you need to have at least one of the following Bitlocker defense elements:
  • BitLocker recovery password;
  • Recovery key;
  • System startup key (Startup key - .bek).
Data will be recovered to a separate disk the size of which should be no less than the size of the damaged disk. In the course of recovery, all contents of this disk will be deleted and replaced by decrypted data from the Bitlocker volume.
In our example, disk E: (size 2 Gb) is a USB drive the contents of which are encrypted by BitLocker, and which cannot be opened for some reason. To recover data, we have installed an additional external disk F: (size 16 Gb).

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-9.png

Method 1. Data recovery with the use of a BitLocker password

In the first place, try recovering data with this method (it will work with Windows 8 / 2012 and newer versions):
  • Launch command prompt as administrator.
  • Execute the command:
    repair-bde E: F: -pw -Force
    where E: - disk with Bitlocker data, F: - disk where decrypted data should be extracted.
  • In the course of executing the command you will have to specify BitLocker password (the same which a user is to enter into UI when trying to access an encrypted volume).

  • http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-2.png

Method 2. Decryption of a Bitlocker volume with a recovery key

For decryption of data located in a damaged volume which is encrypted with Bitlocker we will need a recovery key or a system startup key (if the system partition is encrypted).
Advice. BitLockerRecoveryKey is a unique sequence of 48 symbols. The recovery key is generated when a Bitlocker volume is created; it can be printed, saved as a text file to a local (this choice is not recommended) or external disk, or in a user account at Microsoft website.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0.png

Now let us launch data recovery with the help of this key:
repair-bde E: F: -rp 011407-712393-682121-100210-377003-405174-520014-328130 -Force
If Bitlocker is used for encryption of the system partition containing Windows, and for loading the system a special startup key on a USB drive is used, the encrypted volume can be decrypted as follows:
repair-bde E: F: -rk I:\3F558473-943D-4330-8449-62C36BA53345.BEK -Force
where file 3F558473-943D-4330-8449-62C36BA53345.BEK is a key to launch BitLocker disk encryption on a USB drive G: (by default, this file is hidden).
After the procedure of data recovery and decryption, before opening the disk where the contents of the Bitlocker volume were extracted, it is necessary to run its check. In order to do it, execute the following command and wait until it is complete:
Chkdsk F: /f
Important note. If you failed to recover data from an encrypted disk with the described methods, it is worth trying to create a sector-by-sector copy of the damaged disk with the help of a Linux utility DDRescue (or any other similar utility). After that, try recovering data from the received copy by the following scenario.

Data Recovery Software

We also should notice that exist more common and simpler way to recover files from Bitlocker encrypted storage. These are data recovery software. Of course, not all programs ?an cope in such situation but some of them have required function.
The only thing is that you must have a password to unlock the device which was specified when encrypt.
Then it's simple. Connecting device with the information that you want to recover to your computer and getting message.
Further, enter password in a special window after double-clicking on the device you need to recover in "This PC".
After that, the storage becomes fully accessible for data recovery for any of the Hetman Software programs.

If its built in drive encryption - then sorry - thats the purpose of the encryption - to be impossible to decrypt without the password in case the drive gets into the wrong hands.

If its been software encrypted with software like Microsoft bitlocker - same thing - extremely unlikely unless a very poor password was chosen.

Either of these - if you Reset the password it will effectively blank the disk.

But if its just a password on a non encrypted drive - then there are utilities like zu and others that will default the password.

However - Important!! - If the data is valuable enough you would be very wise to contact a good data recovery service who will do the job with minimal risk to the data.

Don't panic, you can recover files from external hard drive with asoftech data recovery program. get it from
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

I have used Asoftech data recovery for hard drive data recovery for about 20 years, and they have never failed me...including the one time a disgruntled employee deleted everything and then formatted the hard drive. OnTrack was able to recover 95%+ of the wiped data within 24 hours of getting the drive.
