If you forgot or lost the password for the data or removable drive, then you must have it's BitLocker recovery key to be able to unlock and gain access to the drive again.

 

He didn't save them on one drive or usb drive?

This sounds a bit strange to me. Surely when you encrypt your drives you would keep the key safe and make a backup..

 

Like others have said though I don't think he's got any chance of seeing those files again. Not without doing something that counts as brute forcing. (which I'm sure is against the rules of discussion here at BW9)

I believe it, people lose their router password all the time.  People think wow , I will encrypt my drive with a strong password.

I would believe that unless you know the recovery key or have it in a backup like a USB there really isn't much you can do unless you are a wizard at cryptography. However I would still try Roady's program and see if it helps, wouldn't hurt.

Before encryption...  did the files happen to reside on other drives?  You could try data recovery if you know what they were.  Lots of luck!
