Just a quick and friendly tip. Often when I re-install my computer and I want to enable BitLocker, I want to save the recovery key temporarily to my C: drive. If you try to save to the desktop for example, Windows will complain and give you the following error message:
This location can’t be used.
A quick tip is to use \\127.0.0.1\c$ and save to the wanted folder. Windows will not complain about that. Just remember to move the file to another place than the drive you are encrypting when you got the time….. J
