Word – Unlock locked drive with Bitlocker using Password


I have a Bitlocker encrypted drive and when I encrypted the drive, I saved the Recovery Key to my USB. Then I changed my system windows from 8.1 to 7 (because of some reasons) and suddenly lost my USB.

Now, I have problem with unlocking the drive because I have no Recovery Key. but I still remember the Password I set to drive. Is there any method to unlock this encrypted drive with password instead of recovery key?

Note that I didn't save my recovery key to my Microsoft account.

Although the question is old (and still has no valid answer), this command asks for your password (not the recovery password) and unlocks your drive, if your drive has a password:

manage-bde -unlock drive: -pw
