bitlocker incorrect function error when turning off in usb drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    I cant turn off the encrypted usb drive in windows 10 after turning it on with the bitlocker.
    After im moving my important files to external hdd,i would like to turn off bitlocker in my usb 3.0 but it prompts me at incorrect function when attempting to turning off bitlocker.Im running windows 10 1709 edu/32gb internal/2gb ram

     i will discuss the detailed changes ive made in my usb drive before turning on bitlocker
    first,i went to disk management and deleted the volume of my usb 3.0
    second,i created a new volume in it and formatted it as ntfs so that it will appear in the system as hard disk drive instead of removable drive so that i can defragmentize it for better performance of the apps installed in it.
    ive used bitlocker before on any removable drives and nothing have a problem,i can encrypt and decrypt anytime except at this time after i converted it :(

    Thanks in advanced :).

  • I would only worry, if that would be a reproducible problem. Now simply backup the data, format, re-encrypt for a test and try to decrypt again.
