lundi 12 mars 2012 07:44Today I tried to encrypt my local disk D and I feel like it's taking too long and I cancelled it. I don't remember how I did the cancellation but as a result, my free space now only have 5gb left from 30gb before the encryption. Need help! Thanks

I suggest you run Disk Defragmenter and Disk Cleanup. If the free space does not increase, you may back up disk D manually and format it.
Windows 7 - Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use
Hope that helps.

first check status of bitlocker.
>manage-bde -status c:
if disk is fully decrypted, then follow the below steps:
when we enable bitlocker, we create a temporary file in c:\systemvolume folder which is a hidden folder.
You need to take ownership of this folder.
Then you will see a temporary file which will be around 24 gb.
delete this file.
you will get ur space back.
