yoga 920 bitlocker enabled by default?

2018-12-04, 17:30 PM

Argh, so my niece has a Yoga 920 RUNNING wiNDOWS 10 PRO

She apparantly put the laptop in her bag while it was still running, it overheated and died.

I pulled the drive and have it mounted in a desktop and I can see the drive but it is locked.

She swears she never enabled bitlocker and does not even know what it is. She never saved a recovery key to a flash drive, or printed it.  I logged into her Microsoft Account and there is no bitlocker recovery key stored there.

Her semester is coming to an end and this drive has ALL HER FINAL CLASSWORK on it. It was not backed up

If it was enabled by default, is there a generic bitlocker recovery key? Or something? Or anything?

Any updates on this? The link does not work.  I am getting the bit locker issue after a windows update.  Windows 10 Home no bitlocker keys.  Is this related to the TPM?
