Bitlocker Encryption progress stopped at 95.8% for days RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, please help me, my bitlocker encryption progress just stopped at 95.8% for days.

    I tried restarting the computer, after inputing the password and the bitlocker encryption commences again, but it still wont budge from 95.8% even after two days. I tried turning off bitlocker for this drive and it just made the computer froze.

    Please help.. I just want to decrypt this drive and not put any password for it..

    Thank you in advance..

  • Afternoon,

    Try using the command line "manage-bde -off C:".

    Please ensure you run cmd as admin.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    Typing the commands below in CMD window: (D refer the drive you encrypted)

    manage-bde -pause D:

    manage-bde -off D:

    Then try running "chkdsk /r" on that drive to see if there are any bad sectors that need to be fixed.

    Regards,
