    What are the chances of BitLocker corrupting an HDD?


    Hey, all.

    I have a 1 TB external USB 3.0 HDD that I use as a backup drive. I'm thinking of encrypting it using BitLocker (not sure which method I'm going to end up using). What are the chances of BitLocker corrupting the drive during encryption/decryption? Have any of you had good experience with BitLocker?

    :)

  2. HDD Corrupt ?

    Hi,

    There are many possible reasons this issue is happening. We'd like to ask few questions below:

    • What is the brand name of you Hard Disk Drive?
    • How old is the HDD?
    Since you already tried multiple troubleshooting steps, we suggest visiting the manufacturer's website. Find and download a hard drive diagnostic software to help resolve the issue.

    Let us know how it goes.

    HDD Corrupt

    well I'm sorry Dan, but when you have years worth of work on an hdd you don't care how pointless a command is espesially when it says something to the affect of "your master boot record seems to be modified or corrupted". When you get that you kinda don't care making a new one just seems to be a good idea. As for recovery console I was hoping running off of a disk would work because their is a chance he might not get a read only error seeing as he is not currently working off of the hdd. Not entirely sure but its a thought, and a much more effective step tword helping him than the space you just wasted with a post directed tword telling me I'm wrong about something that hasn't been tried.....or did he say he already had?
