    Encrypted a non systemen drive with bitlocker and found out I couldn't boot into safe mode to solve a driver issue. Typical MS thinking not warning the user when enabling bitlocker safe mode is not possible. Perfect way of cascading multiple problems in case of an infection. Advise: use treucrypt, better security and no problem booting in safe mode using it. But why? What's the logic behind the MS solution or is it sheer stupidity?

    Worked great until I got to the "manage-bde -off c:". I receive the following: "ERROR: An error occurred (code0x80070015): The device is not ready."

      Make sure the C: drive is the one that is encrypted.

      I received the same error message after following all of the steps and verifying that I'd selected the correct drive. Unfortunately, I had to follow the next set of instructions for "How to Remove BitLocker Protection from System Drive C: Without the BitLocker Recovery key or Password" to deleted the encrypted partition and do a fresh install of Windows 10. Luckily, I'd backed up all of my important files to an external hard drive recently and didn't lose anything.

    After running Manage-bde off c: in recovery environment, and then rebooting and fixing an issue with a boot error within recovery environment, I am now booted back into windows 10, but when I try to run Manage-Bde -on c: I get error "ERROR: There are no disk volumes that can be protected with BitLocker Drive Encryption."

    ?? any thoughts ??
