Bitlocker & Hardware encryption on Samsung EVO 850 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have SSD of Samsung 850 EVO, it support hardware encryption. 

    On SSD drive I have multiple partition, one for SYSTEM (C:)  and one for DATA (D:).

    I want use hardware encoding with bitlocker for both partition. Actually i'm set bitlocker only for system. Hardware encryption for System is ok where manage-bde -status.

    For second partition on same drive hardware encryption is not supported. Why? If try set bitlocker for DATA partition, so system use software encryption, not hardware.  If I run command in cmd

    manage-bde -on D: -fet Hardware

    I get error code 0x803100b2 -  The drive specified does not support hardware-based encryption.

    Its possible some fix it for use hardware encryption on multiple partion on same drive? I can format full drive again.

  • Hi,

    Your manage-bde command is correct, I search online and find out a similar case, but there is not a clear solution

    In my opinion, you could try this:

    Open Disk Management and create a 200MB partition.

    After this, reboot computer and re-encrypt by your method again

    Good luck
