    Bitlocker Decryption paused and does not resume.


    i locked one of partition in my laptop with bitlocker. every thing was working fine until i decided to unlock/decrypt it again.

    i did this by following simple steps, and when it started decrypting i unknowingly restarted my laptop, now it is paused and there is no way i can resume it again.

    i can access the partition without any error but the little decrypting window is very annoying, can you please tell me how i resume it or get rid of it?


    some pictures are attached for clarification.

  2. BitLocker Decryption Paused..

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, some days before, I started BitLocker encryption for my 1 TB external hard disc. My bad mistake. The encryption was not finished successfully. After that, whenever the disc is inserted, it is saying that there is error in encryption and the
    disc is not ready yet. I have also checked the BitLocker Drive Encryption option in control panel, but there is no option for "suspend protection/turn off BitLocker". Even I cannot open any folder within that drive. I cannot resume/cancel the encryption/decryption
    also.

    There are lots of important data inside that drive and I have to recover those to my computer. All I need is to decrypt that drive and put back it in its earlier stage without any encryption. Please help.

  4. Bitlocker Decryption paused and does not resume.

    Windows 7 BitLocker

    One of the steps in upgrading from Win7 to Win10 says to turn off BitLocker. I selected to turn off and then decrypt drive which it says to do, that was running for hours, I walked away and now it says decryption paused but nothing about
    how to get it started again or restart it. There is nothing to show status of the decryption but the Win10 installer still says it isn't finished and can't move forward with installation. How do I resume the decryption and know when it is finished?
