How do I open my bitlocker encrypted USB drive on my Mac?

Due to the BitLocker being a Windows feature there are limited solutions to accessing encrypted USB devices on a Mac.

If you need to move files from a Windows machine to a Mac, the most suitable solution is to store your files on a network drive.

You can use your personal university filestore to achieve this: https://faqs.aber.ac.uk/index.php?id=1288

 

However, if you have a BitLocker encrypted drive that you need to open on a Mac then you can use M3Recovery.

M3Recovery is available here: https://www.m3datarecovery.com/mac-bitlocker/open-bitlocker-encrypted-usb-drive-mac-osx.html

Note: This is only a free trial and may limit the features available. The full version is a paid piece of software.
