Bitlocker is off but C drive shows Bitlocker encrypted Wondows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • BitLocker according to Control Panel is off

    The C drive Icon has the padlock icon and yellow ! icon

    Disk Management states the drive is "Bitlocker Encrypted"

    Screenshot below

    I am attempting to clone the drive has a backup but Acronis fails because it says the drive is BitLocker encrypted

    I need to turn BitLocker OFF but there is no option in the control panel

    I cannot locate any third party sodtware, this is a Dell Latt 7480

    Windows 10 64Bit PRO 1703

  • Hi,

    “The C drive Icon has the padlock icon and yellow ! icon”

    Try to hover over the mouse and see maybe it gives you a pop up information on it.

    Check the error code recorded in the Event Viewer(Windows Logs\Applications, System).

    we could run command “manage-bde -off C:” as administrator to turn off bit lock on C drive.

    I noticed you want to clone the drive. Clone is not an official measure which would cause system corruption. I recommend you to transfer data with USMT instead of clone.

    Best regards,

    Joy.

  • If a drive is encrypted, but encryption is suspended, we will see a "!" icon. Please verify using the command

    manage-bde -status c:

    --

    Acronis True image should be able to image BL encrypted drives when they are suspended, so that would indicate it is not suspended and that's why I ask you to confirm the state using that command.

  • So I have the exact same issue and when I use the manage-bde -status C: command I get 

    Conversion Status: Used Space Only Encrypted

    Percentage Encrypted: 100.0%

    Encryption Method: AES 128

    Protection Status: Protection Off

    Lock Status: Unlocked

    Identification Field: Unknown

    Key Protectors: None Found

    I'm having no luck with it. Everytime I'm outside the OS it says your C drive has a bitlocker encrypted and when I'm in control panel I have see the same image posted. Any ideas? I didn't see a real answer to this question yet.

  • Ricky, you have no protectors set ("Key Protectors: None Found"). Add a TPM protector, if possible and afterwards see if you can suspend bitlocker and then use your backup program.

    manage-bde-protectors -add c: -tpm
