Thanks for your patience and persistence. I had emergency couldn't get back to you. Plus I am disabled and I use a voice recognition and it went down. My problem is a friend gave me a Seagate backup plus external hard drive, and it has bitlock on it. We don't know she set a password.
Expert:  Kris Rodgers replied 12 months ago.

Ok - it could be encrypted either with a TPM chip or a password.

Do you know the PC she used to add the encryption?

I'm not sure but I know it's an Apple laptop. I think it's a MacBook.
