    HOW CAN I GET KEYPACKAGE.BEK; AS THAT WHAT WAS SAVED DURING ENCRYPTING WAS TXT FILE
    The ".BEK" file is the startup key for the OS drive.

    It's going to depend on where you saved it to when you encrypted, or backed it up to later.

    That would have been Option One though that also failed.

    Hello, I have used option 2 successfully to recover the SSD that came out of my daughter's Surface Pro 4. She experienced, like many, a black-screen freeze problem. After many trials of trying to reset it with power-button-hold cycles (and power-button-+volume holds). I harvested the SSD out and have gotten all the files out like the option 2 tutorial showed [Tremendous THANK YOU, BTW]. I notice in Disk Manager now [picture below], that it shows up now as Disk-1. It has a MB partition, then a healthy F-drive (BitLocked), and a Windows RE tools drive. It looks like this may be her old operating system and data. Somewhere I read this might usable to boot from and in fact, may come back to life just like it looked on her Surface, but now in a different tower-form.
    When I change the boot order in BIOS to have 1) USB Hard Disk SABRENT [the name of the adapter I used] and 2) UEFI USB SABRENT, and I disconnect the other hard drive in the tower-computer, restart, It comes back with "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"

    Hello @KETBD,

    You would be better off doing a clean install of Windows 10 on the SSD on the tower, and copying back any files you wanted from the recovery.

    OK, thank you. I am intrigued now. I solved the booting issue. I needed to make "UEFI Hard Disk:SABRENT" the first choice. It then started to load and asked me for the BitLocker key. So, I inputted. Started to wake up. Got a message about updating configuration, then it crashed. BSOD with "stop code: driver unloaded without cancelling pending operations". It eventually shut down. I have reconnected the main drive. I can go in and unlock the SSD drive with the key. So, no harm to the recovered drive.
    Just starting to research that stop error.
    Also, while I am in the control panel page where I unlock the drive. It gives me an option to turn BitLocker off for that drive. Also an option for "Turn on Auto-Unlock". I was going to fiddle around with those too. Thank you!

    Hello, I get the SSD to boot up, but I get:<br>"stop code: driver unloaded without cancelling pending operations. What failed dump_WppRecorder.sys". As it tries to update. I have gone through advance recovery and done a "repair". I eventually was able to get all the way back in. I had read that drivers may be the culprit. I updated them all, some were old, and new ones were found. I did get all the latest updates downloaded, it shows "up to date". But then when I go to restart, I get the error again. I have been able to get in using the recovery method twice now. I have read that some have gone in through the command prompt in safe-mode and disabled the WppRecoder.sys. But I have also read that it is pretty important. Have you seen something like this before? Thank you

    Was this with a clean install?

    No, I am trying to avoid that (but may give up soon).

    Hi @Brink Any specific reason why not to use the destination\recover.img in the commands?
