Bitlocker Encryption Issue

By jodyneville ·
I have a user's M2 Sata drive hooked up to my own machine via an enclosure in an attempt to save the data from it as it is booting into the dreaded Automatic repair loop.

On my PC, in Computer Management the drive is showing up as online and healthy with 3 partitions as expected. The drive is encrypted with bitlocker and I have the key.

However, in BitLocker management it tells me that bitlocker is not on for the drive. And in file explorer, there is the disk is showing up with no data and is asking to be formatted when you try to access it, acting just as if it has been encrypted.

Can anyone help me get around this?

Just open File Explorer and find your data drive(clients disk drive), right-click it and select Turn on BitLocker, follow the guide to achieve encryption.

Or use manage-bde command to encrypt drive directly.
