How was it set up, did you store it in AD?
Or to a USB stick, or print?

HI

if you've lost your password and your recovery key, then there is no way for you to access the data protected by BitLocker. If you could, under these conditions, then that means that anyone could and therefore the whole point of encrypting your drive is defeated.

Rahul, Bitlocker does not start encryption before you save or print the key, so definitely, you have saved or printed it - take your time to remember. If it left you with the option to continue without saving it, that could only mean the key was saved automatically to your active directory computer object (in case this is a domain joined computer) - and since that key in AD never gets deleted, it would still be there.

I would be surprised if you could achieve anything using that cracking tool, because normally, it would take years to crack. Only if you had a Memory dump file in a backup, it would work instantly. How is it going, Rahul?
