  1. Bitlocker Decrypting Time?


    I have bitlocker with win10 pro. I am decrypting it because i need to in order to clone the new nvme ssd.


    Its a bit over 200gb that i have. How long does it take usually? I had thought it was like 20-30 minutes or so but i read online that it will take hours?


    It still shows bitlocker decrypting right now and has been for over 30 minutes.

    :)

  3. Decrypting bitlocker.

    Original Title: BITLOCKER

    I am trying to get my HQ to move my computers form their OU to mine and I am being told that the bitlocker needs to be decrypted. Is that correct or is bitlocker unique to each computer and not the the naming convention of the location that initialized
    bitlocker?

    Bitlocker Decrypting Time?

    bitlocker decryption

    Bitlocker doesn't get invoked all by itself. Without the key there is no way to decrypt the device. That is, of course, by design.
