  1. Can I lock my regular folders using bitlocker?


    Hello! I have TPM chip 2.0 embedded in my hardware. I always secure my pc drives using Bitlocker. But I cannot lock my C drive. Why is that? Also can I lock my regular folders documents, videos, music, etc. using Bitlocker? If no, then is there any 3rd party apps for this purpose?

    :)

    Change in folder size after enabling Bitlocker

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand you concern related to the size of the folder displayed. Try these steps to narrow down the issue:

    1. Disable bitlocker
      and then check the folder size.
    2. We would also suggest you to open the folder and select all files and see the size of the contents.

    Let us know if the size of the contents matches the folder size. If you see a difference, then the folder might be showing incorrect size.

    Kindly reply us with the requested information to assist you better.



    Awaiting for your response.

  3. Windows 10 creates a folder that has label "xxxx" that is very large and I would like to delete it but it i locked

    Hi Nigel,

    It's possible that the folder you wish to delete is saved on a drive that is secured by BitLocker, we recommend that you first turn off the BitLocker on the suggested drive by following these steps:

    • Search for Manage BitLocker on the Ask me anything bar.
    • Locate and select the drive where the folder is saved.
    • Click on Turn off BitLocker.
    • From the dialog box, select Disable BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    Once you've disabled BitLocker, locate and delete the desired folder that you wish to remove from your drive.

    Note: We highly suggest that you check first the content of the folder before deleting it.

    Let us know if you encounter any challenge along the process.

  4. Can I lock my regular folders using bitlocker?

    Folder locked and dissapeared after unlock

    Well here's something i found on this:

    Lost my files in Folder Lock

    But it doesn't work here , i don't have that folder.

    Can somebody help me searching for a solution , tnx.

    EDIT:

    I did that and that's when the folder just disappeared but the data is still there, the program is very confusing about restoring files , it says that "files should become unlocked automatically" ... so where the heck are manual unlocking instructions.

    It's not an encrypt , it's just a password lock , so data is all open. The problem is, i would get like 225 GB of individual files off the HDD recovery , i just want the harder way of accessing the folder but getting the folder structure , where can i find the time to SORT 220 GB of data omg.
