Bitlocker can't be activated for D: Drive RRS feed

  • Frage

  • Hi all,

    We want to use Bitlocker encryption for our company Clients (Win10 Pro, 1607-1709). I am doing some testing with 2 clients and am facing the problem that I can encrypt my C: Drive but CAN'T encrypt the D: Drive (2nd Partition) with some Data files. I am using the Bitlocker Management console from Win10 to encrpyt. When I start it, it only lets me select my C: Drive. If I open the explorer - select the D: Drive and go to manage, Bitlocker is grayed out! I have no idea what is the problem...

    I have two clients, a PC and Laptop, both Dell. Both are in the domain

    PC: No TPM, Win10 1709. C is SSD and D HDD

    I've checked the following:

    • No GPO Settings made that might prevent Bitlocker on other drives
    • Drivers and Bios are Up2Date
    • I have local Admin Rights
    • I've manually created a 500MB partition on the D: Drive on my pc, no changes

    Can someone help me out? I tried to search in google, but no one seems to have the same issue... 

    Thank you in advance.
