On my Windows 10 second PC I have an additional SSD which was encrypted by default with Bitlocker using no password or secure key.
Because that PC started to show some other hardware problems I tried to backup that drive using other PC running Windows 7. -> Because drive didn't mount in Windows 7 showing that it is encrypted with Bitlocker (I didn't even know about this), I mounted it back in my Windows 10 machine and using manage-bde -off E: command I tried to fully decrypt it.
And for no reason that Windows 10 PC doesn't work anymore I pulled up that additional SSD and tried to continue to decrypt it under Windows 7 but it doesn't work.
Forgot to say that it stopped just when decrypting it. From time to time (just a few minutes and it stops again --its main SDD is bad!) that Windows 10 PC runs with no problem and I mounted it back to try to continue decrypting it. manage-bde -status says that is is 35% still encrypted but when I try manage-bde -off E: it takes a few seconds and stops again.
I need to decrypt this SSD and I have no idea how to do it.
I tried to do it on a Linux live USB using criptsetup and also dislocker but it gives the following error every time:
Cannot parse volume header. Abort.
Then switched back to Windows 7 PC and trying to continue to decrypt it here but it shows me this:

There is no password.
How to decrypt it, please?
Thank you in advance!
