  • You would have to decrypt the hard drive prior to upgrading to Windows 10 Technical Preview.

  • Hi,

    We’d better decrypt the hard drive before we do the upgrade(as Carey Frisch suggested ), during the upgrade, Windows might need to restart for a few times, in case the different mechanism of the encryption, the install configuration process might be interrupted.

    For detailed information about the mechanism of the encryption, please consider seek help at the manufacturer side.

    Best regards

  • Correct.  Anytime you have disk encryption software, it must be decrypted before you upgrade any version of Windows.
