How to enable BitLocker device encryption on Windows 11 Home
Apparently, you can enable a stripped down version of BItLocker on Win11 Home, it's "Device Encryption".
Bahh haa haa! You must not be working on too many newer dells then! HP is pleagued with it too, the bios is faulty and fails. When it fails, bitlocker gets enabled. It's the universal blame game. Bitlocker is a OS/Microsoft component, and NO manufacture will or wants to help you. All you can do is buy a SSD reader, and reformat it and reinstall the operating system. It's not like the standard hard drives, you can't read or open crap after bit locker gets enabled. If she had one drive turned on, there's your back up. If not, you have to start over. Like stated the keys are are I just say embedded on the main. FYI if the computer doesn't NOTHING, most manufactures have come up with a work around, you can load the new bios and TRY and recover the main. I've been pretty successful. When up and going make sure you install driver checker, go to HP, and make sure bios is current. It will also reinstall any other missing or out of date drivers. Last one I did was a dell, 14 months old, manufactures response to a 14 month old BRICKED $1800 laptop, thanks for buying Dell, you should have purchased the extended warranty. I was always a HP guy, switched to Dell, my Inspiron 15 3000 was a POS out of the gate, I refuse to fix my own crap, especially when it has a manufactures warranty on it, they screwed me around until it was out of their warranty while unresolved and Omar said have a nice day.....There was certainly some "active and conscious" effort by someone to make that happen. Bitlocker doesn't show up and encrypt your drive on it's own!
