I secured D drive partition of my laptop But I lost the recovery key I still have the password but lost 3 digits from it

Is there a way that I can recover the data? Also will the drive "resist" in any way if I try the 999 combinations one by one?

There isn't much you can do other then trying to remember very hard what these 3 digits are. There is no known way to circumvent BitLocker in general. If you type in a wrong password several times, the system will report the "Too many PIN entry attempts" error message and then your only chance is the recovery key.

While I understand that you might find this regrettable, one should also not forget that this sort of security is the whole point of BitLocker.
