Backed up bitlocker enabled laptop -restored, not encryted

Post by slewis1972 » Sep 25, 2015 2:28 pm

Ok - Windows 10 laptop, first full backup was not encrypted. I then enabled bitlocker on the C Drive.

Just done a test restore - chose latest incremental point and full system is not encrypted.

What am I missing, is it supported to be this way?

Thanks in advance,

Hello,
Just done a test restore
Have you unlocked the destination volume while performing a volume level recovery? Thanks

No option to unlock.

Did the restore twice, physical system has bitlocker enabled - and tested
The restored version was spot on since last backup.

Perplexed as why its not encrypted?

Hi Scott,
To make sure we are on the same page - was it a bare metal recovery thru the recovery media or you performed a volume level recovery while logged in to the regular OS? Thanks
