  2. Locked out of computer because of BitLocker Recovery Issue, but I NEVER ENABLED BitLocker!

    Hi Raynee,

    For us to properly assist you, we would like to ask for more details about the issue. Please help us verify the following:

    • What's the make and model of your computer?
    • Can you recall if at some point you have enabled Bitlocker?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards.

    Bitlocker recovery issue

    Absolutely nothing at all wrong with the principle of encryption, but it's usually the method it's used, the purpose for which it's used, and the level of experience of the user.

    Interesting to note that the 2 responses above supportive of Bitlocker carry conditions (@sygnus21 "Nothing wrong with using BitLocker other than not understanding it's use"), (@hsehestedt "I dare say that the majority of people with issues simply don't follow best practices or may have other underlying issues such as hardware issues."), which would suggest it's not as robust and reliable in the hands of the inexperienced.

    And as a brave assumption, with all due respect, I suspect the OP is in this situation, hence my recommendation not to use it.

    The fact that it doesn't come with the every day commonly used Home version would suggest Microsoft may feel the same.

    Frequently come across users who use BitLocker simply for no other reason other than ..
    - it came with Windows Pro so I thought I must use it
    and/or
    - I accidentally started it from the menu but didn't know what I was doing
    and/or
    - it's simply downright cool and hip to be able to say your data is encrypted
