How to recover data from partially decrypted BitLocker drive?

I was decrypting my BitLocker drive and it got interrupted due to power failure, and since then the 3 partitions of the disk are stuck at different percentages of decryption. The files and folders in these partitions are partially showing up in Windows Explorer but any further attempt to copy or view more files inside the folders makes the system hung. The manage-bde -off [partition] commands didn't help neither. How to get back the data from the partitions and decrypt the drives completely?
