  1. Administrative Rights on Bitlocker Activated Drive


    Hello. I have a very strange issue to ask for assistance. Recently, I lost administrative rights to my own computer, via Computer Management, on my device. As follows, there are 2 standard accounts on the device and 0 administrative accounts. The default administrator is disabled and cannot be enabled on my device due to lack of privileges. I have also tried using recovery methods, such as booting into safe mode with command prompt, but each attempt fails because the drive has Bitlocker protection enabled, which is denying me access to change settings. I am not certain if there is any way to recover my rights on the drive but if it is to any avail, the device is running Windows 10 Professional. Thank you and have a nice day.

    :)

    Need to turn off Bitlocker to install Windows 10

    Hi,

    We suggest doing the following steps again to resolve the issue. To complete the procedure, make sure that you have the following information:

    • You must be able to provide administrative credentials.
    • The drive must be BitLocker-protected.
    To suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption on an operating system drive, please follow the steps below:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel, click
      System and Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Suspend Protection for the operating system drive.
    • A message is displayed, informing you that your data will not be protected while BitLocker is suspended and asking if you want to suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Yes to continue and suspend BitLocker on the drive.

    Let us know how it goes.

  4. Administrative Rights on Bitlocker Activated Drive

    How to turn bitlocker "again" on a drive which was previously bitlocker decrypted? Please Help!

    Hi,

    Device encryption helps protect your data by encrypting ("scrambling") it. Only someone with the right encryption key (like a password) can decrypt ("unscramble") it.
    • Sign in to Windows with an administrator account.
    • Go to Start, enter encryption, and select
      Change device encryption settings
      from the list of results.
    • Select Manage BitLocker, select Turn on BitLocker, and then follow the instructions.
    Also, please refer to the below link and check if it helps.
