Hello, many devices already use Bitlocker. However, they are manually encrypted and the recovery keys are lost.

I would like to enable Bitlocker in my organization via Intune policy. But I don’t understand what the behavior of devices will be if the disks are already encrypted.

Won't this create problems?

Thank you.

    @Mountain Pond Thanks for posting in our Q&A.
    Please enable Bitlocker with Intune on a not encrypted devices. If you enable Bitlocker with intune on already encrypted devices, there is no change about the devices.

    Based on my search, here are some places can find your BitLocker recovery key:
