Ubuntu – BitLocker / Dislocker on Ubuntu 16.04


In order to use an USB-Stick encrypted with Bitlocker I installed Dislocker on my Ubuntu 16.04 according to Use (Windows) BitLocker-encrypted drive on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Unfortunately I cannot decrypt:

  • sudo fdisk -l lists 4 Partitions even though there is only one partition on the USB-stick. And the size is wrong too. (The Disks Utility shows also only one partition.
  • sudo dislocker -r -V /dev/sdb4 -uMyPassword -- /media/bitlocker does not mount any of the 4 listed partitions

Best Answer

I fixed it using the command

sudo dislocker -r -V /dev/sdb -uMyPassword -- /media/bitlocker

(no number after /dev/sdb)
