I had been using bitlocker for quite a some time. Then I decided to move some of my space from one volume to another. So, I had to decrypt my hdd. When the job's done(moving space) I go to encrypt it again. But except the SSD I see in my HDD's "bitlocker status : Not encryptable". Idk why is it. Then I got to powershell and try to encrypt it. this happens.. 234865-desktop-screenshot-20220825-17212155-2.png

    Hello

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query\issues related to

    I believe the partitions are setup up could be issue. There needs to be a non encrypted boot partition that hosts the Bitlocker code which can decrypt the windows partition.
