Windows 10: Bitlocker

  1. Bitlocker


    I launched the process to encrypt an external drive full encryption, not just a partition. However, during the process, my laptop entered sleep mode. After I woke it up, there was no message but it looked like the process had ended. I removed the drive. When I connect it, I get a message to enter the Bitlocker password and it unlocks without any problem. How can I make sure that I fully and correctly encrypted my device, given that the computer entered sleep mode during the process and that I did not see the message that usually appears at the end of an encryption process indicating that the process ended and that the device is encrypted?

    :)

    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.
