    How to use Bitlocker to encrypt (and automatically decrypt) a single but partitioned hard-drive (C and D partitions)?

    Hey Solar Eclipse,

    I was brave enough today to enable Bitlocker on both my C: and D: partitions of my hard-drive.

    Everything went well, following your instructions.

    I enabled Bitlocker first on the C: partition (where Windows 10 is installed), and then on the D: partition.

    While enabling Bitlocker on the C: partition, the partition unlocked (and continues to unlock) automatically - a Bitlocker password was not requested.

    Regards the D: partition, it also unlocks automatically - the wizard for enabling Bitlocker on the D: partition had automatic unlocking as an option, which I chose.

    So other than not having to input a Bitlocker password while enabling Bitlocker on the C: partition, your instructions are exact. So I'm marking your post as an answer.

    Many thanks!!

    Bitlocker lock partition D:\ in my PC

    BitLocker Data Partition unlock on boot

    Hi Bradford. Thanks for the response and link. I went through that but it seems to suggest that my system drive must also be BitLocker protected.

    As I have written above I don't want to protect the system partition.

    Here's what I would like to do :

    1) Partition new Windows 10 Pro Hard disk into C: and D:

    2) Move location of User Folders like "Documents", "Desktop", "My Pictures", "My Videos" etc to D: drive

    3) Encrypt D: drive only using BitLocker

    4) On boot, have the computer ask for BitLocker password to unlock/decrypt D: drive so that my
    User Folders like Documents, Desktop are accessible on login

    5) The user name with which I will be logging in will have administrative privileges

    Is the above scenario possible?
