Bitlocker is a feature available in some versions of Microsoft Windows*, it is used to encrypt the filesystem of storage devices, and can only be decrypted using a password, smart card or stored key; depending on the configuration you used to encrypt the drive. The drive needs to be detected in order to decrypt the data.
Here are some actions you may try in case the SSD is not detected:
- Connect the drive to a different SATA port.
- Use another SATA cable.
- Check if the SSD is detected in the BIOS.
* You might try connecting the drive to a different PC, however, even if the drive is detected the data may not be available if it was encrypted.
