BitLocker on 2 OS partition without TPM? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have C: partition with two Operating Systems on it:
     1. Windows 7 Ultimate;
     2. Ubuntu.

    I don't have TPM on my PC, so I would use USB Recovery Key option in BitLocker.

    Can I safely turn on BitLocker on C: partition using 16 GB USB flash drive which has >5 GB free space? Or USB flash drive should be empty?

    Also, I have D: partition with documents.

    Can I safely use the same USB flash drive to turn on BitLocker on D: partition?

    I ask because I want to be sure that this can't cause any damage to my Hard Disk, supposing that I use BitLocker properly.
