  1. Bitlocker: Can't Save to Your Microsoft Account


    With a bit of future planning, a rarity for me, I decided to back up my Bitlocker key. However when I select "Save to your Microsoft account" through the Control Panel app, i receive an error Can't save to your Microsoft account". I have plenty of space on Onedrive, and several hundred GB on my local machine too. Onedrive seems to be working--indeed its in the process of synching. Could this be the issue? Any ideas? I'm on the latest Windows 10 build with all recent patchdes applied.

  2. Cannot Save Bitlocker Recovery Key to Microsoft Account

    I have a brand new Surface Pro with Windows 10. I am attempting to enable BitLocker.

    From the Control Panel / Manage Bitlocker, I click "Turn on BitLocker".

    I am given a question, "How do you want to backup your recovery key?" and I choose, "Save to your Microsoft account."

    I am greeted with a popup, "Bitlocker Drive Encryption error. Can't sign in to your Microsoft account. You need to be signed in to Windows with a Microsoft account to save your recovery key. Sign out and hen sign in with a Microsoft account, or go to
    Settings and choose Accounts to change your existing account."

    I am signed in, but I went through these steps again, but I am unable to save my recovery key to my Microsoft account.

    How do I fix this?

    No bitlocker key save to logged-in microsoft account

    No problem. I have searched around a little more, but I am afraid the option to backup the key to the account is either broken or has been partially removed. Just my theory.

    You could use the feedback app and search for "Bitlocker save" and vote to support one (or all) of the complaints listed there - like this we give Microsoft direct feedback.
