Hello,
Hi,
I have a folder encrypted with BitLocker. I have reinstalled windows 7 and am trying to read or unencrypt the folder but it is never asking me for the key. It just says access denied. How do I install the key on the system or link the key to a user account?

Hello hanmertech;
Did you turn off BitLocker and disable protection before the re-installation?
