How To Mount BitLocker-Encrypted Windows Partitions On Linux

BitLocker Linux Dislocker

This is a guide on how to access a BitLocker-encrypted Windows volume from Linux, useful in cases of dual-booting Windows 10, 8 or 7, and a Linux distribution. It covers how to decrypt and mount the BitLocker partition from the command line, as well as how to add it to /etc/fstab, so it's automatically mounted on boot.

BitLocker is the logical volume encryption system included with Microsoft Windows. BitLocker is available in the Pro and Enterprise editions of Windows 10, 8, and 8.1, as well as in the Education editions of Windows 10. It's also available for the older Windows 7 and Vista Ultimate and Enterprise.

To decrypt and mount BitLocker volumes we'll use Dislocker, a tool for reading BitLocker encrypted partitions on Linux and macOS. Dislocker features read/write support for BitLocker encrypted partitions on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 and Vista (AES-CBC, AES-XTS, 128 or 256 bits, with or without the Elephant diffuser). It also supports BitLocker-To-Go encrypted partitions (USB/FAT32 partitions).
