  • Hi SD.46,

    I have made a test on my Windows 10 1607 version. If you have enabled the "Auto unlock"  feature of the data drive, decrypting the system drive will unlock all the drives.

    If you didn't choose the "Auto unlock" feature, decrypting the system drive won`t affect the data drive.

    Best regards
