Any Way to Recover Formatted Bitlocker Key?

#1
So yes it was very stupid to not write the key down but i quick formatted my usb key with the bitlocker key on it and i cant seem to find it using recovery software.
I have used recuvra, recover my files, and pc file inspector and i still cant find it....

In all honesty, I don't have a definitive answer for you in this situation. But here is some information that may be useful to you:

There should be a 48-digit recovery password in the event you have lost the actual PIN? BitLocker recovery password details - System Integrity Team Blog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

Scroll down for a Recovery Option: Windows 7 BitLocker Tool (BitLocker to Go) and BitLocker Password Recovery

Perhaps, the best answer can be found here, although, may not be good news: i've lost my bitlocker password and saved key of my external drive. this happened after i formatted my pc and installed windows 7, i need to unlock the drive badly... what do i do???
