    Bit-locker Encryption / Cracking Windows Password


    Hello all,

    Looking to implement Bit-Locker Encryption at my company. I've found you can actually add a pin to be used at the boot screen thus adding more security. I was wondering if I just use the encryption and don't use the pin at boot would this leave open a hole for someone to use a Windows Password Reset memory stick to crack the windows password and be able to login on the PC/Laptop.

    Would having a pin on boot stop this from happening?

    It just seems to me adding a pin is going to be more of an inconvenience than a security feature?

    Any feedback welcome.

    :)
     

  2. Bit locker Encryption

    Hello Fiends,

    Actually my problem is that i have previously installed windows 7 ultimate(32 bit) in my desktop and to protect my data,
    encrypted the "D drive" using bit locker, then after few months, i installed
    windows 10 pro(64 bit) in my desktop without disabling the bit locker, after installation i was able to access my locked drive with same password.

    Till here everything was fine, but after some days my Desktop started to lag then again i switched to
    windows 7 ultimate(64 bit).

    But Now i'm not able to access my encrypted drive which was locked by bit locker with same password.

    While i'm trying to unlock the encrypted drive i'm getting the massage as
    "Unable to Complete the requested operation because of either a catastrophic media failure
    or a data structure corruption on the disk".

    Pls Help.

    Thanks.

  3. BIT LOCKER DISK ENCRYPTION

    I have upgraded my system from Windows 7 to windows 10 and i have applied BIT LOCKER ENCRYPTION to C: Dive as well as D: Drive.

    I don't have TPM available so i have Done encryption through Without TPM.

    But every time i boot the system it is asking for the Password key that ia have entered before encryption.

    I don't want that every time i boot it should ask for password.

    i want that at boot time the system boots automatically without any password.

    Need some help in this case
