BitLocker Recovery Keys

Overview

BitLocker recovery is the process by which you can restore access to a BitLocker-protected drive in the event that you cannot unlock the drive normally.

Procedure

You can obtain BitLocker keys for Windows computers by signing into https://aka.ms/aadrecoverykey with your Volmail/Office 365 credentials.  

NOTE: It is highly recommended to back up the code to a file and print it out. The codes may not remain available after you graduate/leave the university. On a Windows PC, you can access this option by going to Control Panel > Manage BitLocker > Back up your recovery key as shown below.
