Bitlocker does not use hardware encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a problem with Dell XPS 13 (9360R), Samsung evo960 ssd and windows 10 bitlocker. Everything has been done according the instructions. Samsung magician shows encrypted disk is enabled. When I turn on bitlocker, it is using software encryption. If I try to force hardware encryption on by group policy, I get a notification "Bitlocker did not return to using software encryption due to the group policy. 

    How do I get the information what prevents bitlocker hardware encryption?


    (Minulla on ongelma Dell XPS13, Samsung 960evo ja windows 10 kanssa. Kaikki on tehty ohjeiden mukaan, mutta silti bitlocker käyttää vain ohjelmallista salausta. Mistä näen, mikä estää laitteistosalauksen käytön?)
