Enable Bitlocker via script on Data drive

    Question

  • I am trying to enable bitlocker on our laptops which have a C partition (OS) and a D partition (Data)

     

    I have downloaded EnableBitLocker.vbs and managed to enable the system drive encryption using 

    enablebitlocker.vbs /on:tpm /l:c:\windows\temp\bitlocker.log


    The Data partition (D:) does not encrypt using this however. I cannot see a way to specify the drive using this script.

     

    Can anyone advise how I can do this?

     

    Thanks

  • Thanks for that!

     

    Quick question - I am being informed that "Only the OS volume may be secured with the TPM"

     

    This would indicate that I can only use TPM on the C: drive. Surely this isn't the case?

     

    Thanks

  • Hi Aidan,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

     

    "Only the OS volume may be secured with the TPM", I would say this is incorrect. The TPM is used to perform system integrity checks on critical early boot components. The TMP collects and stores measurements from multiple early boot components and boot configuration data to create a system identifier. for that computer, much like a fingerprint. If the early boot components are changed or tampered with, such as by changing the BIOS, changing the master boot record (MBR), or moving the hard disk to a different computer, the TPM prevents BitLocker from unlocking the encrypted volume and the computer enters recovery mode.

    Did anyone get this working on all fixed drives?
