Hello! When I typed in my password for bit locker to unlock it came up with this message: 
 
BitLocker Drive Encryption failed to recover from an abruptly terminated conversion. This could be due to either all conversion logs being corrupted or the media being write-protected.

I have tried on two computers on Win 7 with the same problem.
Yes I have tried BitLocker Repair Tool from Microsoft but with no luck. Hopefully there is another solution apart from deleting 7 years of hard work at school of 16gb!

yes. I haven't used it since last time. Just to be sure, how do you make sure it is not write-protected?

The bitlocked data you need is on the hard drive or the 16gb usb stick?

What did the bitlocker repair tool report exactly?

Unfortunate that you lost all that data. Try run a Recurva on the drive? Wondering if that will pierce through Bit-Locker security now that it's been erased.

Having the only copy of your information on an encrypted flash device is perhaps not the wisest decision you've ever made.

NAND fails, it's not a truly reliable storage mechanism and you should always have backups.




Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

This +1

Having important data stored only on one disk/drive in one physical location is insane.
