Error message with bitlocker

Hi When starting a backup, and one of the drives are locked by bitlocker, the error message is "Volume (X:) does not have enough free disk space to create VSS snapshot".
Maybe that should sound different?

Hello,

Yes the UI functionality to unlock the drive is not available in the BETA. Meanwhile, you can go to TOOL > CMD and run:

Code: Select all
manage-bde -unlock c: -rp YourBitlockerRecoveryKey

Yes, I have unlocked it, and it is running fine now. It was just the error message that maybe should sound different?
Something more alike "Volume (X:) is locked, please unlock it to perform backup"

Hi Jens, we will have proper Bitlocker support in the GA version right in the user interface. Thanks!
