How to save your work from a system drive with Bitlocker

This is real small tip but a very crucial one.
When you have bitlocker on your systemdrive and somehow your windows installation becomes corrupt then this is the procedure on how to access your data still on the systemdrive.

1. Get the system drive physically out of your system.
2. Attach the drive to another system running windows.
3. When you want to access your data browse to the drive and access it like your reguraly do.
4. You will be prompted to type your PIN.

You can see that this only will work when you know your PIN.
