    BitLocker Basic Questions (Version 1909)


    I was wondering if BitLocker has been activated on the C drive and on the D drive (which is my data drive) is there any security reason for having an additional Windows operating system password? i.e.

    (1) For BitLocker boot entry (C drive)
    (2) For Windows operating system (non-BitLocker password)
    (3) For D Drive (data)

    Also has BitLocker ever created unrecoverable errors due to disk faults or moving a storage drive to another computer or an external caddy?

    I guess the whole point in BitLocker is to have additional security so that if your storage drive is stolen or accessed, no data can be read, written or copied from it.

    :)

    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.
