bitlocker whole drive encryption questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please excuse me if I posted to the wrong forum.

    I googled bitlocker whole drive encryption for a ssd laptop. I got the professional edition of windows 10. The article said it can take several hours to encypt a whole drive, but that it occurs in the background. What happens if the laptop hybernates or if you shut down windows or restart windows after the encryption started?

    The article also said that in order to do bios updates and windows updates you have to temporarily disable bitlocker. Is this true? Even for minor windows updates?
