Disable-BitLockerAutoUnlock

Disable-BitLockerAutoUnlock

bitlocker.psm1

Synopsis

Disables automatic unlocking for a BitLocker volume.

Syntax

Disable-BitLockerAutoUnlock [-MountPoint] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Disable-BitLockerAutoUnlock cmdlet disables automatic unlocking for a volume protected by BitLocker Disk Encryption. The cmdlet removes automatic unlocking keys for specified volumes stored on a volume that hosts an operating system.

You can configure BitLocker to automatically unlock volumes that do not host an operating system. After a user unlocks the operating system volume, BitLocker uses encrypted information stored in the registry and volume metadata to access data volumes that use automatic unlocking.

You can specify a volume by drive letter, or you can specify a BitLocker volume object. You must remove automatic unlocking keys before you can disable BitLocker by using the Disable-BitLocker cmdlet. You can use the Clear-BitLockerAutoUnlock cmdlet to remove keys for all the volumes configured to use automatic unlocking instead of just specified volumes.

For an overview of BitLocker, see BitLocker Drive Encryption Overview (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732774.aspx) on TechNet.

Parameters
