@Brink Pls sir can you help me. I used to have the lock icon to unlock following your instructions, well I haven't used that drive in awhile and so I went to it to access some files I needed for resume and the lock icon is gone. I thought maybe avg pc tune up deleted the keys, so I put the files back in windows system32 unlocked the vbs file and merged the .reg file and nothing happened. I put it on desktop and c: and tried it and nothing. What gives? I can still go to control panel security and access it there, but too much time and can't lock back. I'm running windows 7 ultimate. Thanks..
Yes and it has, This script used to work fine, but like I said I haven't accessed this drive in some time, and noticed last night the lock was gone. I retried the fix and it's not working.. I can go to control panel security and access bit locker there. Just no icons through explorer no options to lock or unlock
It was encrypted, like I said everything was working fine. I just noticed the lock was gone yesterday. I didn't notice it lately because i haven't needed anything off that drive. I can still go to bitlocker settings and put my password in and open my files. It's just not listed in explorer or my computer like it used to be..
I figured it out on my own.. AVG pc tune up when in performance mode disables all that stylish looks, some how in the process it also removes the context menu for bitlocker on the drives. For anyone using avg pc tune up and your state is performance/turbo state and you don't have the context menu, switch back to standard mode. Hope this helps someone.
Thanks for the utility. Works ok, but found an issue. If I unlock a drive, the "Lock drive" option works fine. But if I lock it and then unlock the drive again the "Lock drive" option doesn't show up, and instead the option still says "Unlock drive". Clicking on that or the drive letter in Explorer gives a message that says the drive is already unlocked. The only way to access the drive is to select "Open in new window". A reboot gets everything back to good, but that 2nd toggle isn't working correctly. I'm on Windows 10.
