BitLocker locked my external harddrive by itself

  Dani1982 18:41 15 Dec 2015

Please help! This happened when I for first time I connected my external drive to PC running on Windows 10. I have never enabled BitLocker on this drive and I don't have a key All my work backups were on this drive and I need to unlock it, formating is not an option. I saw that for Windows 8 there is some BitLocker Drive Encryption. When I tried to connect it to Windows XP, 7 or 8 I dont have and option to unlock it, only to format it.

Help me please.

Try Rolling back to W8(?)/8.1 on the machine you set up Bitlocker on.
