    Vista's BitLocker

    Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I understand it offer offers
    full disk encryption using two keys (FVEK and VMK), one of which
    can be stored on a USB stick (VMK?). My question is this:

    Say the USB stick is lost, or one of the keys themselves. Can the
    BitLocker encrypted data be recovered another way(s)?

    TIA, brokencrow

    I should've googled that one before I posted. There is a recovery password.
