Thanks SAM, we are accepting the fact that the encryption will not be done at this moment.
@scottalanmiller I think you nailed it. I was researching more. I think it is "InstantGo."
In cmd prompt, typing "powercfg /a" does not include "Standby (Connected)" value but rather "Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Connected"
The device was perhaps encrypted before so it should have been supported.
Do you have any idea on how to re-enable it?
Thanks in advance!
It was my understanding that Bitlocker was one of the upgrade features of Windows 10 Pro. So in the Home edition, it would be impossible to enable BitLocker, as BitLocker is not present.
Thanks for the response. But this unit has been purchased and have Windows 10 Home installed, so it might be from factory settings. I have not been able to grab a screenshot but it is similar to
The most likely thing is that something else was used and it was misidentified as being BitLocker.
I doubt it as I turned it off in System > About and near the bottom of the section. The problem is, I can not undo it.
I would like to seek assistance in re-enabling BitLocker on a Lenovo Yoga with Windows 10 Home. I have already posted this to other forums but still pending approval and the other from MS still has no answer.
A bit of history. The laptop was purchased with Windows 10 Home. I would need to re-partition the drive (SSD) to the owner's request of 200GB for System and the the rest for data drive. Using disk management, I can only shrink the system drive to over 400GB (I would need it to be 200GB) due to unmovable files. Both drives C and D drives has been identified by disk manager as BitLocker Encrypted.
Using the Disk Manager, I was able to shrink the partition to over 400GB but I would need more so I reverted it back, no problem there. I have tried to disable the hibernation, paging files and system protection, reboot then defrag. Still can not make it to work. Re-enabled the the services reverting it to default values.
Now, I have used AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard to do the partitioning for me. However, upon running it, the Resize feature is disabled even after a restart. I remembered that the drive is BitLocker protected and disabled it.
Now that the system is running happily, I would want to revert back and re-enable the drive encryption. However, I can not find the settings to do it. Additionally, I have read in multiple sources online that BitLocker is not available in Home edition. How come that from factory settings, it was enabled by default so I'm pretty sure that I can re-enable it, thus I am seeking your assistance on this.
Thank you in advance!
For an IT, I never really get the grasp of containers, much more its usefulness whereas there's virtual machines.
I know its just me and it is useful for others, just saying that I don't know anything about containers/Docker.
Just chimed in, perhaps someone can give me a light on this (I know its great, useful for others but any usefulness is beyond me).
She didn't learn much from IBM. We definitely didn't turn to sales people when we needed to determine how to do things. That's totally the opposite of what IBM was like when I was there. We knew the tech, and only used what was needed.
Maybe that's why she's not there any longer.
She's more on Financial dept rather than Operational from what I heard.
I think the original questions has been answered. Thanks a lot guys, but if you still have any ideas or would like to chime in, pls. do so.
Will still continue to use:
More research if suitable:
good to have but on a single file server, doesn't make any sense
Do not do it! Not enterprise ready or is inferior to VMWare VSAN:
If he really wants security, maybe moving away from SMB shares would be ideal Not that SMB can't be secured, but it is harder to lock down than more modern approaches.
Its the way things are...I approached my direct boss and opened up DMS but she said she knows DMS and it is just an unnecessary cost/process (something as not just worth it) as we already have a working solution. If she sees that it may save atleast 35% of the process it will be worth investing into, but on her experience (she worked with IBM for quite some time and, as I can tell, she has been up that corporate ladder but am unsure how far--gaining experience, before leaving to take on our company). That's how we got in touch with VMWare, she directly contacted one of the regional heads and to schedule a meeting/presentation.
