It'll just depend on if it will be able to successfully finish decrypting.

Hello Malcolm, and welcome to Eight Forums.

That doesn't sound good at all. You might try restarting the computer again to see if you may get a BitLocker failed message, and then return to Windows.

Otherwise, it's looking like it may be time to clean install. :(
