  • Hi Ritesh Nikam,

    Are there any error messages recorded in the Event Viewer(Windows Log\Applications, System, Application and Services\Microsoft\Windows\ Bitlocker-API and Bitlocker-DrivePreparation Tool)?
    Is this the first time to enable Bitlocker?
    Are you using MBAM (Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring?
    Is it available to encrypt a USB drive?

    If you are using MBAM, here is a similar case for reference:

    Please run “sfc /scannow” to check the health of system files.

    Try to test in a clean boot.
