bitlocker decryption stuck at 99.2% RRS feed

  • Question

  • last week i encrypted my external toshiba drive using bitlocker. initially it started slow and reached 0.8% thats when my laptop blacked out. when i plugged in the power supply, it resumed but didnt shift from 0.8%. since i wanted to use the external drive and i tried decrypting it using bitlocker but it also got stuck at 99.2%. though i can access my data on the drive i need your help. its been days now.

  • That's easy: take an image backup of your drive, clean the disk using diskpart - clean and replay the image. replayed images are always unencrypted (unless your imaging software uses sector by sector imaging, but that's very unlikely the case by default).
