I am a complete novice to the field, however I made the mistake of locking my Macbook bootcamp partition with a bitlocker password which I cannot remember entirely.

There isn't much irreplaceable data on the partition, but I would like to know whether there's any way to recover the password.

the format was :


What I have forgotten are the two words, which were standard English words (albeit long ones). The first one was capitalised.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions,

Thanks in advance

    $\begingroup$ hashcat or John the ripper should do the trick here. $\endgroup$ – SEJPM Jul 18 '18 at 17:12

Well, this isn't really on topic for our site, so it will probably be closed.

But you might want to look at something like John the Ripper.

Either that or just grab a dictionary of English words and write a program to put combinations of them together and submit them as password guesses.
