I have a hard drive that's bitlocked. when I try to unlock it the process freezes and i need to reboot the server to clear it. I can unencrypt the external hard drive from a laptop but it bitlocks automaticly after its unplugged which is fine. My problem why cant i unlock it from the server? why does the process freeze?

If I connect another external drive I cant access it and if I try to open the external drive the explorer freezes and I have to reboot the server again.

Any idea? Thank you
