    HI

    I am really worried about the bit locker encryption, when I start the encryption I didn't have any requirement to do the encryption. I just saw the encryption word and push the start button. Actually it was a very foolish action I have ever made.
    Because I didn't know about the encryption and didn't know the bit locker encryption as well.
    The encryption was not happened completely and I removed the drive after 30 seconds.Now I cnt access the data most of the photos of my children and other excel files.

    My laptop OS windows enterprise( Service pack 1 )System type 32-bit Operating System
    I tried to use recovery key the massage was "error recovering G:The recovery key you typed is not correct. Type it again"

    I was trying to use this key for several times.

    Finally I used the command prompt- by googling

    Status 1.GIF Resuls.GIF


    1. I did not start the bit locker recovery tool option
    2. since i do not have much knowledge about the command prompt and technical knowledge , is it better to get 3rd party support on this for repairing bit locker recovery tool option available in Windows
    3. Multiple attempts on recovery key dangerous ? will it be harm to the data in Drive?
    4. is it possible to recover the data from any option available.?- I didn't have any backups
    5. If the bitlockoer recovery tool success , the files I stored in the drive appears as same order ( as I saved)
    6. do you know any agents in Sri Lanka to support this issue?
    7. Some you tube video says , stay calm and upgrade it to latest Windows version and try it again. Will it success?
    If you guys can help on this really appreciate....
