    Bitlocker does not show all my internal drives


    Running Win 10 Pro, all 5 internal drives are 2TB and formatted NTFS.

    Only 3 show up when I open BitLocker.

    External USB drives are also showing up ok.

    Any ideas why this is?

    :)

  2. BitLocker not detecting secong internal drive?

    I have enabled BitLocker on my external drive and on the internal drive with my OS on it, but I want to enable it for my second internal drive which i use for file storage, but for some reason when I go to Manage BitLocker, my second internal drive doesn't
    show. Can someone help me?

    I have my computer set up so that my SSD is used for some file storage but mostly for my OS. My second internal drive is set up to store all files from My Documents, Downloads, Pictures and basically all other default Windows storage folders. Could that
    be the problem since that drive is linked to my OS drive that maybe it won't allow it since it would use a different encryption key or something?

    Bitlocker does not show all my internal drives

    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.
