First, we make two folders,
sudo mkdir /media/bitlocker /media/mount
Then, download and then extract Dislocker.
You'll want to install some needed packages:
sudo apt-get install libfuse-dev
To install it, we need to change directory to the
Depending on your operating system, you'll need to choose one of these:
For Debian-like distos based on Debian Jessie or Ubuntu 14.04 or older:
aptitude install gcc cmake make libfuse-dev libpolarssl-dev ruby-dev
For Debian-like distos based on Debian Stretch or Ubuntu 16.04 or later:
aptitude install gcc cmake make libfuse-dev libmbedtls-dev ruby-dev
Now we finally install dislocker:
sudo make install
Here, we need to find our partition so we dont erase all of our drives accidentally:
sudo fdisk -l
If we have a recovery password, we can decrypt it using this:
sudo dislocker -r -V /dev/sdaX -p1536987-000000-000000-000000-000000-000000-000000-000000 -- /media/bitlocker
PS: You should replace
1536987-000000-000000-000000-000000-000000-000000-000000 with your recovery password.
If you know your password, we can just use that too:
sudo dislocker -r -V /dev/sdaX -uPASSWORD -- /media/bitlocker
PASSWORD with your User password. Attention: keep the
u before the password! So, if your password is
UbuntuLover, you shall use
uUbuntuLover after the hyphen.
If you are decrypting with a recovery file then use "path/to/.BEK" instead:
sudo dislocker-fuse -V /dev/sdcX -f /media/user/usb-drive/00000000-0X0X-0XX0-XXX0-XXXX0XXX00XX.BEK -- /media/bitlocker
Now, we finally mount our file:
mount -r -o loop dislocker-file /media/mount
(If the mount above fails with "Permission denied" add the
-r option and try again.)
Now you can move to the /media/mount folder and see your decrypted data.
