How to Access an Encrypted Drive

1. To Access Your Files

Try to open the drive as you normally would. Windows will pop up with a window from BitLocker asking you to "Enter password to unlock this drive".

  1. Type in your password (remember lower and uppercase letters matter)
  2. Click the "Unlock" button

2. A New Window Opens

Congratulations! Your files are now available for you to open or edit normally, yet are
safe and secure.

From here on Windows will automatically encrypt any changes your make or new files you save to this drive.
