Can a Bitlocker TXT file be converted to a BEK filetype

Is there some way to convert a Bitlocker txt file to a .bek file ?

I am in Windows Startup Repair, and it is asking for my Bitlocker password.

But the USB Keyboard will not work.

So I can’t type in the key which is what I normally do when logging in to my Windows 10 desktop.

I do have the .txt files that were saved when I ran Bitlocker originally on the discs.

In Windows Startup I tried using the .txt file, but it would not accept it.

I am guessing if I have the .bek version of the file, this might work.

Is there some way to do this covert?

Thanks in advance,
Dave

    No, that is not possible, as that would imply to create a 2nd protector of a different type on a drive you don't have access to at the moment.
    Hm, the USB keyboard does not work? Try a different port/keyboard.
