    What is the difference between ransomware and Microsoft's Bitlocker?


    Not a lot. I have never consented to have Bitlocker on my device and yet I have this mystery code that I am unable to access in order for me to access my own data. And yes I have tried all the useless suggestions from Microsoft. I have just had to pay £150 to have my computer reinstalled because of Microsoft Bitlocker. You guys really should be checking people have consented to get their devices encrypted with a code that is not available to the owner of the data.
