    bitlocker won't encrypt one of my drives


    bitlocker will not encrypt my d drive
    I have no idea why this is
    but I want all of my droves encrypted

    I have tried formatting the drive with a windows installation usb because I thought that my screw up earlier was the cause of it
    (I accidently installed windows to my d drive, turned out the bootloader for my current windows was on there for some reason and I formatted it and reinstalled windows on the correct drive)

    I have no idea why bitlocker will not work on it, anyone know how to fix this?
    I have left a screenshot of the disk management tool and the bitlocker window
    the one highlighted and circled is the one that's causing me the problem
    and yes i am running windows 10 pro
