    BitLocker Entire Drive Encryption?


    I ran the manage-bde -status command of my encrypted OS Volume Drive and it shows 100% encrypted.
    Does this mean that BitLocker encrypted the ENTIRE drive?

    During the BitLocker setup, I did select to Encrypt the Entire Drive instead of the Used Space option.
    I just want to double check if my entire OS drive is encrypted or not.
    I assume that when it shows Percentage Encrypted as 100% then I guess it did encrypt the entire drive.

    Now what if I had chosen to encrypt the Used Space only, then would it still show as 100% encrypted ?

    Or am I wrong?

    Thanks in advance
