I started the encryption process on my blank 64GB USB stick.
The process ran for about 12 hours and stuck at 21%. I paused the BitLocker encrypting process and restarted my computer.
And then I can't unlock the drive using neither the password nor the recovery key. It's it's saying "The password enter is incorrect".
I think the encryption process might had been corrupted.
I'm now trying to format the drive and use it; however, every formatting software I try tells me that the drive is write protected.
This is the result of the command
manage-bde -unlock f: -pw.
I also tried to clear out the WriteProtect flag; however, it did not help as the USB was never marked as write protect.
How do I format and make use of my USB stick again now?
