  • Bitlocker is only available in Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise.  It is not available in Windows 7 Home Premium.

    See information in the Windows 7 Professional for Small Business chart posted.  Bitlocker is the next to last feature compared on the chart.

  • So what alternatives do Win7 Home Premium owners have to secure USB drives?

    You find a 3rd party encryption utility via an internet search.

    Or you upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 10 Professional.
