  • Hi,

    I want to confirm that what version of Windows 10 have you used?

    If you are using Windows 10, BitLocker is not supported.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi, 

    As I know, BitLocker is not supported in Windows 10 Home Edition. 

    Please right click the Windows icon and choose System to see your Windows Edition.

  • Bitlocker only work in Windows 10 Professional and Enterprise, and you need to save the recovey key or if in your machine use TPM 1.2 or latter you can configure TPM to manage your Recovey Key.

    Can you use the command below to check if your bitlocker was active.

    Click Windows button and write CMD (run as administrator) > in CMD use this command to check your bitlocker. manage-bde -status

    If you prefer you can use manage-bde /?   and check another options for example (turn on, turn off, etc..).
