I just have a few basic questions about BitLocker:

- I was just wondering what happens if I lose my password and recovery key. Would I (or someone else) be able to access my HDD (I hope not...)?

- If my hardware failed (except for my HDD) and I attached my HDD to another computer either internally or externally through a caddy with a USB cable would I be able to access my HDD with only my BitLocker password or would I also need the recovery key?

- Can BitLocker ever become corrupt to the point where one cannot access a BitLocker encrypted HDD?

Many thanks for any advice.
