Hello @TanishkSharma-8637



This seems to be related to an issue on a past cumulative update for Windows.

Please update your system with latest updates, specially KB5003212

"Addresses an issue that fails to apply BitLocker encryption. This issue occurs on removable drives that have a master boot record (MBR) active boot partition."

This was discussed in the next thread: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/186615/bitlocker-encryption-on-usb-only-works-after-volum.html?page=2&pageSize=10&sort=oldest
