There is a BitLocker-encrypted partition on my Windows 10 computer that holds important data. The partition was accidentally deleted when I tried to install Ubuntu. How do I recover the partition such that I can continue to unlock it using my bitlocker password? I have downloaded and tried several data recovery tools which are recommended by my friends or colleagues, none of the tools mentioned are able to detect the bitlocker encrypted partition. Therefore, not able to recover the partition.

Please note that:
1. Bitlocker metadata must be intact: Bitlocker metadata was used to store the password and 48-digits recovery key when encrypting the drive with Bitlocker. In some situations, Bitlocker metadata has been corrupted so that lost data cannot be recovered even if you have correct password or recovery key.
2. Have correct password or 48-digits recovery key: The password or 48-digits recovery key is used to decrypt data from Bitlocker encrypted drive after the password or 48-digits recovery key you enter matches the password or 48-digits recovery key stored in Bitlocker metadata.
3. Don't save the recovered files to the partition where your lost files originally located. This prevents your data from geting overwriten.
