Windows 7: How to turn off automatic USB Drive encryption prompt from BitLocker

How to turn off automatic USB Drive encryption prompt from BitLocker

Hey,
recently I have spotted a new feature on my Windows 7.
After connecting USB Drive, a prompt appears:

"Before you can save files on this drive, you need to encrypt it using BitLocker"
I can choose either "Encrypt this drive using BitLocker Drive Encryption" or "Don't encrypt this drive".

What I really want is to prevent this automatic "offer" from appearing, since I want to use this USB drive as a bootable stick, so any kind of encryption is not possible.
How can I do that?
