Windows 10 Pro BitLocker Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I enabled BitLocker, I selected to encrypt the ENTIRE drive instead of the used disk space only.

    My question is, what would the MANAGE-BDE -STATUS show under Conversion Status if I would of had selected the option to encrypt USED Disk Space Only?
    Would it still show as FULLY ENCRYPTED?

    So for example, if one would enable BitLocker and select the option to encrypt only the Used Disk Space Only, then under the Conversion Status, would it still show as FULLY ENCRYPTED when executing the MANAGE-BDE -STATUS C: ?

    If anyone has Used Disk Space Only encrypted with BitLocker, please post your MANAGE-BDE -STATUS C: print screens. I am just curious if it shows FULLY ENCRYPTED or just only Used Space Encrypted under the Conversion Status.

    Thanks

  • Hi yes I am back. I need some examples of the OS drive as well. So if a user has selected to encrypt the Used Disk Space Only for the OS volume, would it also show as Used Space Only Encrypted? I need this for my encryption audit reports and I must ensure all users select Encrypt Entire Drive.
    Many thanks

  • If this is for your encryption audit reports then surely you need to do the testing yourself?
