When the IT admin initiates Bitlocker encryption from the SureMDM console remotely or from the target machine manually, the encryption progress is not displayed for Windows 10 devices. Once initiated and it becomes quite challenging to validate the progress until it’s completely encrypted.

Users or Admins can now run a command on their machines to track the progress of encryption.

Below is the command for the same:

manage-bde -status C:

Parallelly, they can also verify the Bitlocker recovery ID and password using the below command.

manage-bde -protectors C: -get

NOTE:

  • cmd prompt should be run as administrator on the device.
  • C: refers to the drive which is being encrypted with Bitlocker.
