WIn10 Pro, current level
Surface Pro 7
Part of domain

I had to do an image restore to clear a missing camera issue. It was a Win11 system, but the image restore was corrupted.

I then did the Win10 image restore and it required to re BitLocker the drive. I successfully did that and printed the updated BitLocker recovery Key ( which was different from the previous one).

I went to the above named site where all my recovery key are listed But, it has not been updated to the new key.

Why & what do I do to get this updated.

    Hello,

    The encryption process starts after you logon with a Microsoft account and the key should be saved to your Microsoft account cloud storage at https://account.microsoft.com/devices/recoverykey.

    Here are some known issues related:

    I wonder if the issue is that I was joined to the domain when I re-encrypted. I do have the MS account active in the domain. Can I un-bitlocker, then break domain and re-bitlocker?
