Lenovo X1, Windows 10 Pro When I got this machine, I immediately split my 1 TB SSD drive into two partitions. It was a few years ago, but I assume I just used Disk Manager. Nothing odd there. Recently, I wanted to adjust the partitions to have a larger 😄 partition. Since this involved moving data on the D partition, I tried to use a utility called EaseUS Partition Master free version (formerly Partition Magic, I think). It said it could not adjust Bitlocker partitions - I had to get the pro or paid version of EaseUS. That's when I discovered that both my partitions showed as being Bitlocker encrypted, but with a plain text password. I never installed or activated Bitlocker! I do not want it. I have some individual folder trees encrypted with EFS, and some others with Veracrypt. But I do not want any full drive encryption. Is there a safe way to remove the Bitlocker encryption on each partition when I have no idea what the password is or if there even is a password?
