In the past I have never used BitLocker, but recently I have become interested in setting it up on both my mom's computer as well as my own. We both had Windows 8 Pro on which we never used Bitlocker, and have both upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro. Since becoming interested in BitLocker, I have configured it on my mom's computer, and now want to do it on mine, but I have a problem: my BitLocker isn't working. I spoke with Microsoft support about it, and they determined that my BitLocker is corrupt for some reason. Since I couldn't pay them to fix it for me, I am left to deal with it on my own. How can I repair my corrupt BitLocker without losing all of my data? I looked in my
%RootPath%\System32 folder where the BitLocker files are stored, and they are all there. The only problem is that when I try to run them, nothing happens. On top of that, the link in the Control Panel for BitLocker is missing, and I think that's mostly where the problem lies. How can I resolve this?
