  1. Windows 10 bitlocker protected drive is not working.


    Hi,

    Detailed Case Information:
    I have Windows 10 and BitLocker enabled.

    HDD, Seagate 3TB, partitioned into 5 drives.

    I did this mistake, I created a bootable USB by easy bcd and tested on host window during boot. Reached to the point where windows setup asks for disk selection, I clicked on the drive(setup says drive encrypted and can't continue) but didn't go further.

    Then I boot nothing shows up.

    Tried to connect 3tb hard to another PC to unlock drive but it's not accepting correct password and recovery key.

    I made windows image before encryption. After restoring that 2nd and 4th drives are not accessible, 5th is formatted and 3rd drive data is intact with minor data loss.

    I ran testdisk-7.0 and found no drive in the quick search. The log file is pasted below.

    Bit Locker disable problem

    To my knowledge Bitlocker is compatible on all Windows PCs. Exception: If you protected a drive with the new Bitlocker encryption on Windows 10 then you cannot unlock it on a Windows 7 PC. I can open my Bitlocker protected drives on other Windows 10 PCs.
    But I choose to protect them with a password since I don't have the TPM chip in my PCs and I use
    Bitlocker to Go for removable drives.

    When you are finished with a drive protected by bitlocker you don't lock it before powering down or removing it. Bitlocker is not available on Windows 10 Home so maybe you can't open it on a Home edition PC (not sure about that).

    This is a good reference:

    Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 and Bitlocker

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    BitLocker Drive Encryption comes with Windows 10 by default. You don't have to purchase it.

    BitLocker Drive Encryption is one of the best security tools of Windows operating system. This feature of
    Windows 10 safeguards your stored data in fixed or removable drives of your storage system. When you turn on
    BitLocker it saves data on any drive and encrypt it automatically. When you encrypt
    drive, it protects everything with passwords on that drive whether it is file or document. In today’s
    Windows 10 tutorial, we will take you through Encrypt Drive Partition using Bitlocker process with
    BitLocker which will support your system in protecting its data.

    Get Into BitLocker Drive Encryption Window in Windows 10
    To Encrypt Drive Partition using Bitlocker you need to access BitLocker Encryption Window First. For this,


    • Open Cortana Search.

    • Type BitLocker in the search field.

    • And in the search results select Manage BitLocker option.
