I wasnt sure where to put this thread.. Hopefully its in a decent spot lol. So I encrypted a RAID 1 HD that is 1TB large. took over 12 hours. I went to check my PC after I woke up and it said Encryption complete, with a Close button. I clicked close. I went to check the HD to make sure the encryption was working, it showed the drive as locked but when I went to open it it opened.. So I logged out of windows and logged back in, it just shows the drive as unlocked.. How do I lock it. I checked the Bitlocker manager and there is no option.
So I tried a restart which worked, it locked the drive. However logging off still wont lock the drive. I assume there is no way around this? If not, is anyone familiar with Truecrypt? will that program allow for locking on the fly?
(ANOTHER UPDATE) lol
Ok I figured it out upon looking through forums. There is a command you can use "manage-bde -lock x:" x being the drive you wish to lock. Problem sovled!
For those who need guidance do the following: Click start/Run, Type CMD then press enter. copy and paste this ---> manage-bde -lock x: just replace the x with the letter of the encrypted drive you wish to lock.
