How to Unlock Bitlocker Recovery Key id windows 11, 10

If you update your Dell laptop from Windows 10 to Windows 11 then this BitLocker recovery key id error can be seen. Even if you have never enabled BitLocker encryption on your system.

In my case, I found that BitLocker encryption was enabled automatically after updating the BIOS on my Dell laptop. However, on some Dell devices, BitLocker is automatically triggered to encrypt the drive if a Microsoft account is used on the system.

What is BitLocker Recovery Key Id

A BitLocker recovery key Id is a unique 48-digit numerical password that can be used to unlock your Windows system (PC or Laptop).

If BitLocker is unable to confirm this then your attempt to access the system drive will not be authorized. And you may have to format your Windows.

Where to find the Dell BitLocker recovery key

Make sure the recovery key was backed up securely before activating BitLocker protection. Your BitLocker recovery key may be in several places, such as in your Microsoft account, on a USB flash drive, in an Azure Active Directory account, or in one of your organization’s systems.

Your Microsoft account

First of all, Sign in to your Microsoft account on another device such as your Pc, Laptop, or Phone to find your recovery key.

On your USB flash drive

Plug your USB flash drive into your locked PC and follow the step-by-step instructions. If you saved the key as a text file on a flash drive, use a different laptop or computer to read the text file.

On Azure Active Directory account

Yes, if your computer was ever signed in using a school or organization email account, your recovery key id would have been stored in that organization’s Azure AD account. And you may be able to access it directly or may even need to contact the system administrator to access the BitLocker recovery key.
