Windows 7: Migrating Win7Beta bitlocker encrypted data to Win 7 RC

Migrating Win7Beta bitlocker encrypted data to Win 7 RC

Hello,

I currently have Win 7 Beta as my main OS with a non-system partition encrypted with Bit-locker(without TPM). I downloaded a copy of Win 7 RC, but will the new OS recognize the bit-locker encrypted partitions? Do I need to decrypt this drive, re-install the OS and then encrypt this non-system partition again? (I don't have my boot partition encrypted)

Or will Win 7 RC natively recognize the bit-locker partition and I just have to provide the user key to mount the drive?

Thanks,
Icered

Hello Icered, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I would recommend to decrypt the drive first, install the new OS, then use bit-locker to encrypt it afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you Brink. I guess i better start migrating to TrueCrypt from Bitlocker. Decrypting and backing up the data (in the case of Bitlocker) each time i do a re-install is not a viable option....
