I have a USB that contains the Bitlocker key. When I open USB I dont see any files inside. How can I move the Bitlocker key to another USB?

Have you checked hidden files?

"The key will be saved to the USB drive as a hidden file with the .bek file extension. You can see it if you show hidden files."

    Thanks. It wasn't a normal hidden file. It was a protected operating system file. – Rembo Dec 15 '18 at 13:04
