  1. No option to save BitLocker recovery key to Microsoft account


    On my Surface Pro X tablet I'm unable to back up my BitLocker recovery key to my Microsoft Account - there is no option for this function. What do I need to do to enable it?

    I don't seem to be joined to a domain / I have no work our school accounts on this device.

  2. Cannot Save Bitlocker Recovery Key to Microsoft Account

    I have a brand new Surface Pro with Windows 10. I am attempting to enable BitLocker.

    From the Control Panel / Manage Bitlocker, I click "Turn on BitLocker".

    I am given a question, "How do you want to backup your recovery key?" and I choose, "Save to your Microsoft account."

    I am greeted with a popup, "Bitlocker Drive Encryption error. Can't sign in to your Microsoft account. You need to be signed in to Windows with a Microsoft account to save your recovery key. Sign out and hen sign in with a Microsoft account, or go to
    Settings and choose Accounts to change your existing account."

    I am signed in, but I went through these steps again, but I am unable to save my recovery key to my Microsoft account.

    How do I fix this?

    How to save my BitLocker recovery key to my personal Microsoft account, when there is a domain account connected?

    I want to encrypt some personal hard drives with BitLocker on Windows 10, and save the recovery keys to my personal Microsoft account, which is the one I connect to Windows with.

    The problem is that I have also connected my university's domain account, and BitLocker will only let me save the key to this uni account : the "Save to Microsoft account" option in the BitLocker setup window has been replaced with "Save to your cloud domain account", and when I select this, the key doesn't appear in my Microsoft account's recovery keys list, which I assume means that the key has been sent to my uni's network instead.

    These keys are for personal drives and I want to save them to my personal account. I don't want to remove the domain account entirely as it's convenient. How can I choose which account to save the BitLocker recovery keys to ?
