    Bitlocker - Windows 10 - Admin Account - How to

    So, to be clear I completely understand the reasons of this. No need to convince me although I do not agree with the reasoning. For example, the rationale you present is about what is easier for the support teams when it should be about what is best for the employees and users. Shouldn't the...

    Bitlocker - Windows 10 - Admin Account - How to

    Yes, I know and I know. The only thing I want to do is to install a different email client and cloud storage app. I thought of taking an image of the drive using macrium and then restoring it on a VMWare virtual machine. Would that transfer the encryption as well? I woudl have thought so if...
