    Great article
    We have developed a tool in the hope of educating those with there finger print scanning laptops that they are bitlocker encrypted.
    Most have no clue of the importance of there recovery key
    Harddrive engine will check smart attributes and display the age of a hard drive while checking for a mounted bitlocker drive and automatically save the recovery key in a printable report

    Removing bitlocker is not fixing it.

    Case 2: Note for Dell Users —- I am a dell user and have logged into a microsoft account to use Office365 and One Note. The same account is -not- associated with any BitLocker key, so it is not an automatic thing.

      Yes, I spent hours on the phone with Dell and Microsoft since I too only got a Microsoft account because I bought Office 365. No Bitlocker recovery key in here. I understood that they would only be uploaded to your Microsoft account if you registered the device when you first set up your computer and Windows, unless there is an option to do it later which of course would imply that you know of Bitlocker and therefore take care of it. I didn't and spent already days to find a solution. This post here is promising….still going through some of the steps.

      Thank you, Constantinos, for putting this up here. I have sifted through tons of posts on Dell's website about this issue. Yours is the most comprehensive one I came across so far!

    Hey,

    I'm at step 4, just to let you know you need to know the admin's password if you want to boot the installation from an USB. I'm stuck at this part. I can erase the ssd but I'm not sure if I'm able to boot from the usb after I cleaned the ssd.
