  • Hi.. you posted in the wrong forums.. you ideally should be going here:

    Though this is the TechNet forums and is really geared towards Professional / Technical customers and users, so Windows 10 Home probably isn't officially covered.

    But a quick Google tells me you can't use BitLocker on Windows 10 Home. Sorry.

  • It's like that:

    Home does not support bitlocker. What is possible in home, is called "device encryption". DE is only available on caertain hardware (TPM chip present, readygo certified device).

    However, there is a trick to make bitlocker usable on the home edition. Simply activate it with the manage-bde.exe command from a setup environment (Win PE). Even home setup DVDs allow it.
