I have just enabled bitlocker using a flash drive without TPM on windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Just to be prepared - is there any way I can recover data from an encrypted volume in Windows 7 ultimate.

I found links for BitLocker Repair Tool to help recover data from an encrypted volume for windows vista and windows 2008 here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928201 but did not find anything on microsoft for windows 7.

But did not find any for windows 7 Ultimate.

How did you manage to reach 45k reputation without knowing, that answers, that I just a bunch of links are completely useless and violates key ideas behind Stack Exchange? Links tends to become invalid or out-dated. Stach Exchange is a network of people willing to share knowledge, not a useless list of links. Maybe you can spare some of your precious time to reedit this to a full featured Stack Exchange answer? – trejder Jul 7 at 12:07
