    Did you encrypt the folder with EFS instead of Bitlocker?

    Encrypt or Decrypt a Folder or File

    BitLocker is only for drives and not a folder. Did you encrypt the drive the folder was on?

    If so, it also depends on if this was a OS drive or some other drive you encrypted with BitLocker.

    If you have the BitLocker recovery key, password, or startup key, then you could use the links above to hopefully recover the drive.

    If not, then you are out of luck, and would have to format the drive to be able to use it.

    I'm afraid there's not really anything you can do without the correct BitLocker password or recovery key. That's the whole purpose of BitLocker. No access without them.

    It's crucial to keep them backed up and printed out in case they are needed.
