    Device encryption

    I have seen But I still have questons:

    • Why does my system have a BitLocker recovery key if I don't have BitLocker installed?
    • Do I need to save it in a safe place?
    • The above-linked message says if I search the start menu for "encryption" it should take me to a search result where I can turn it off and decrypt the drive, but
      1) There is no encrypt nor anything like it on the start menu and ...
      2)A general search turns up an on/off encryption selection but there is no specific decrypt selection. Other info seems to say on/off only applies to future activities, not currently recorded data.
    • As the above linked message says, encryption/decryption vs. BitLocker is a fuzzy distinction. Given the ambiguity, the instructions should be more clear!

    That all leaves me wondering what I can safely, or conveniently, do.

    device encryption

    All apps » Settings » System » Device encryption » Device encryption: On

    That encrypts just the internal phone memory and not the microSD, yet. Therefore:

    • All apps » Settings » System » About » More info: Please, post (just) your OS build
    • Did you try a new microSD already and did that face the same issue?
