    Used option one on a partition in Windows 10 Pro and it worked like a charm. Thank you.

    I looked for this in the tenforums but to no avail. Perhaps a link there, to here?

    Not clear as to what option one is?
    Which partition do you mean, the "C" drive, or another?
    Thanks

    Yeah, I haven't made a version for www.tenforums.com yet, but it works the same for Windows 10.

    Hello Boomer,

    He's referring to using the OPTION ONE section on the first page of this tutorial.

    The "Lock Drive" context menu can be used on any drive that you have previously turned on BitLocker for to encrypt it.

    win 7 ultimate


    @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..

    Hello papasitogringo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The added "Lock" context menu will only show if the drive has been encrypted by BitLocker.
