How do I recover a drive that is bit lcoker encrypted without the key?

I have a second SSD on my laptop. I removed it today and reset the C drive to HP factory defaults, Once WIndows 10 Pro was all reloaded and updated i reinstalled the second SSD and in explorer they are shwoing a being bit locked and when I try to open them I am asked to enter a bit locker key! I don't recall turning on bit locker but it seems i must of back in 2018. is there any way to recover the data on this SSD?

There is no way unless
-you have an image backup of c:
-you are unaware of recovery keys present in your cloud drive (or printed out, eventually)
