  1. Bitlocker Suspended - Wizard Initiation Fails when Attempting to Resume


    I have Windows 10 Pro and have Bitlocker activated on my computer for many months. I have (3) drives (C, D E) that were all encrypted with Bitlocker. C is the main Windows installation and boot drive. Recently, I received a prompt that showed that Bitlocker encryption was suspended on C. The other drives remain encrypted.


    When I attempt to resume encryption, the following error is generated:

    Bitlocker Drive Encryption Error

    Wizard Initiation has failed.

    The system cannot find the file specified.


    Two questions:

    1. How do I go about reenabling encryption for C?

    2. Why was Bitlocker disabled?

    :)

    Bitlocker on C: suspended after Windows Update Windows 10 1903 2019-07

    After installing the above updates on July 10 2019, Bitlocker on the C: drive was suspended, and I receive an error message when I try to resume "Wizard Initialization has Failed - An internal error was detected".

    I'm running W10 Pro.

    Any thoughts as to how to get it working again? It is still functioning on other drives, but not the system drive on my PC

    Thanks!

    Windows 10 BitLocker suspend protection triggers an immediate resume

    I have two internal hard drives in my laptop that are encrypted using BitLocker and I am trying to install a new Dell BIOS update that requires suspending BitLocker. Unfortunately, when I suspend BitLocker through the Control Panel or PowerShell, it suspends
    for less than 1 second and then immediately resumes. I have poked around in various forums and Windows Group Policies but I cannot find anyone else reporting this problem much less instructions on how to rectify the problem. Dell Support was completely unhelpful...
