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 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
