Bitlocker Encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Team,

    This morning while configuring Bitlocker on a fresh windows 10 Enterprise system I noticed an exclamation mark on the C drive. By the time I saw that icon I clicked on "Turn ON" Bitlocker. In the next dialogue box it asked me to choose the method I want to use to unlock the drive, I cancelled that, since I wanted to check for the exclamation icon on the drive. And the next thing I noticed was the drive status was protected "Bitlocker ON"as soon as I cancelled the dialogue box. (I didn't complete the bitlocker encryption completely) 

    Just to check it again I checked the bitlocker status through PS (manage-bde -status) and it also confirmed the encryption completed 100%.

    Anyone faced the same issue? Please let me know if anyone can explain this as I am not sure if I need to encrypt the machine again.

    Note:- I tried to replicate the same issue on a different machine as well and happened the same.
