Are there any special requirement needs (firmware modules etc) to recover data from a 'Seagate Secure' drive. We have a 100% image of the drive after a head swap and the physical copy of the drive does boot into Windows, but we get a BitLocker message saying 'Recovery Key was not found on this drive' rather than the usual pop up asking for the recovery key.

So I presume it is stored on the original drive somewhere in firmware (FIPS?).

We do have the recovery key by the way but the key not accepted in PC3000 as a virtual drive.

I am not sure of the laptop as its military so its secret squirrel. However I did get into the drive last night. The recovery key was not accepted in PC3K or in W7, but it did mount in W10. I have no idea why. Moral to the story I guess is if it's a Seagte Secure it needs to be opened on W10.
