How to activate BitLocker on Windows 8 / 10 for the Drive Encryption (start, open, customize)?
Easy start (open) the BitLocker in Windows-8 / 10 and 8.1
|Please press the key combination [Win-Logo]+[R], then simply type the command
control.exe /name Microsoft.BitLockerDriveEncryption,
or start the BitLocker via ... Windows-8 Control Panel.
In the BitLocker-Drive-Encryption select the drive to be encrypted. (... See Image-1 Arrow-2)
Use a password to unlock the drive (... See Image-2)
and choose Back-UP location for the BitLocker recovery key. (... See Image-3)
Now you can specify whether you want:
1. Encrypt used disk space only (faster and best for new PCs and drives)
2. Encrypt entire drive (slower but best for PCs and drives already in use)
... See Image-4
You can always adjust, enable, disable, add smart card, change password, or remove and enable automatic unlocking in the Windows-8 BitLocker-To-Go, when you start the Bitlocker again (... See Image-5).
You can use BitLocker Drive Encryption to help protect your files on an entire drive. BitLocker can help block hackers from accessing the system files they rely on to discover your password, or from accessing your drive by physically removing it from your PC and installing it in a different one. You can still sign in to Windows and use your files as you normally would.
When you turn on BitLocker for the first time, make sure you create a recovery key. Otherwise, you could permanently lose access to your files.
