    Hi Neha,

    If you do not have the bitlocker key to unlock it you can:

    If it does not appear there you will need to wipe your device with a new Windows 10 image:

    Hi Neha,

    If you don't have the recovery key or the correct password to unlock your BitLocker-encrypted drive, you can try to recover the forgotten BitLocker password, the lost BitLocker recovery key, or format the BitLocker-encrypted drive.

    For more details, please follow the step-by-step guide on how to unlock BitLocker drive without password & recovery key.

    Hopefully, this can get your issue resolved.
