Is there any way I can access a bitlocker encrypted Windows 7 drive from Linux? I am not using TPM and I do have the key on a USB thumbdrive. So I have all the pieces.
You can try dislocker.
This driver uses a USB key (actually the specific .bek file on the USB drive) to decrypt a Win7 volume, so it's seem to fit your need and capacities.
Thanks very much for your answer. While I did manage to recover my data a while back - I think this seems to answer the question - though I have yet to test– nwalthamOct 22, 2012 at 9:32
There are currently no Bitlocker drivers on Linux, so that is a no.
Though, you could fire up a VM and access it from there.
And after you access it, I would recommend switching to truecrypt truecrypt.org which works better and works in Linux also.– jhcaicedDec 4, 2011 at 17:36
I wouldn't go that far, considering we know nothing of the user's work pattern. But fanboys will be fanboys.– surfasbDec 4, 2011 at 22:23
No problem. Keep on trucking. . .– surfasbDec 7, 2011 at 9:46
