       Dislocker-file - Read BitLocker encrypted volumes under Linux, OSX and FreeBSD.


       dislocker-file  [-hqrsv]  [-l  LOG_FILE]  [-O OFFSET] [-V VOLUME DECRYPTMETHOD -F[N]] [--]

       FVEK_FILE | -c}


       Given a decryption mean, the program is used to decrypt BitLocker encrypted volumes.

       This  process  may  take  a  very  long time, depending on the initial volume size, as the
       program will decrypt the encrypted partition linearly. About  this  size,  note  that  the
       created  NTFS  file  will be of the same size as the BitLocker encrypted partition, so you
       may want to check that you have enough free space on the volume where  you  put  the  NTFS

       This NTFS file won't have any link with the original BitLocker encrypted partition, so you
       may modify it to suit your needs.


       For program's options description, see dislocker-fuse(1). The only change in  the  command
       line is the last argument, which in this case is the NTFS_FILE argument:

              the  newly  created  file  where  NTFS data will be put to, once decrypted from the
              BitLocker encrypted volume.


       These are examples you can run directly.

       Dislock the BitLocker encrypted volume:

              % dislocker -V /dev/sda2  -p563200-557084-108284-218900-019151-415437-694144-239976
              -- decrypted.ntfs

              This will decrypt /dev/sda2 into decrypted.ntfs using the recovery password method.

       To mount the partition once decrypted, use this sort of line:
              % mount -o loop decrypted.ntfs /mnt/clear


       You  may  have to unmount the NTFS partition before halting the system. In order to do so,
       you may run this command (replacing your mount point):
              % umount /mnt/clear


       Note that these are examples and, as such, you may need to modify the given command lines.
       For example, you may want to change the decryption method used in them.
