    Bitlocker: Removing Encrypted Internal HD


    Windows 10 Pro crashed on bitlocker enabled PC. Cannot boot. Scans show no hardware issues. I have bitlocker key. If I physically remove the internal hard drives, will the bitlocker key decrypt them on another computer with Windows 7 Pro OS? If so how would I use the bitlocker key on the Windows 7 Pro computer?

    BitLocker encryption on Internal SSD drives?

    Looking for an answer and getting the right answer are two different things.

    And I can't speak for "other" encryption tools, but YOU CAN encrypt a drive with BitLocker that already has data on it without issue. Going with personal experience; and I'm not the only one. Anyway....

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...quirements-faq (under "How does BitLocker work")

    Nothing suggests the drive needs to be data free to use BitLocker nor are there suggestions to do so. Regardless do what makes you feel comfortable.

    Good luck *Smile
     
  3. Failure to unlock BitLocker encrypted HD after new windows 10 installation

    Hello Kostas,

    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.

    We sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused.

    You can use BitLocker Drive Encryption to help protect your
    operating system drive (the drive where Windows is installed), a
    fixed data drive (such as an internal hard drive), or a
    removable data drive
    (such as a USB flash drive).

    The way you unlock an encrypted drive depends on two things:

    • What kind of drive it is.
    • What kind of unlock method you chose when you set up BitLocker on the drive.
    I suggest you to refer to the following article and check if it helps.

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well).

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know the status, we are glad to assist you further.
