I woke up and my computer was asking for the bit locker key?

My computer went into recovery mode on its own. Why?

Is it a laptop? Had it run out of battery?

It is a laptop. No, it wasn’t out of battery power.

Probably a Windows update that caused a reboot?

Well all I can say is thank god I had all my photos copied on a thumb drive because my entire system got wiped out

You can recover it with your bit locker key.

It will be in your windows account i think

Did you try the one from your microsoft account?. Maybe ask a microsoft chat support about it

yes, I tried all the keys. I’ve had a lot of computers, they are all in there, I didn’t see mine so out of desperation I tried them all, lol

I had copies of my pics. Other than that I don’t care. I just thought I got hacked or something.

That’s strange, the key should be backed up to your MS account and you can access it from another device by logging in with your MS account.

Are you sure you typed the key in properly (no typos). If you did then something has definitely gone wrong.

Good case study on why you should always have backups.
