I'm encrypting a USB 1 TB drive. It's been encrypting for 2 hours, and just hit 7%. I will unencrypt tomorrow when it finishes, Then I will uninstall. Hours and hours to encrypt and unencrypt? I will certainly never do this again. A warning would have been nice!

Installed and registered on Windows 10 very straightforward. Locked and unlocked one of my three (non-OS) partitions successfully.
Backed up my C drive containing the software and new registry items.
Reverted my pc to Windows 7 from a recent backup.
Installed the software using Soft Organizer tracing selecting USB disc instead of Windows program folders as container.
Copied the BitLocker Anywhere folder from USB disc to another partition before using Soft Organizer to completely uninstall
the progrem from C-drive program folder and delete all registry items.
Copied BitLocker Anywhere folder back to USB drive and located
BitLocker Anywhere/x86/BitLocker Anywhere/Bin/BitLockerAnywhere.exe sending shortcut of the exe to desktop.
Opened from desktop short cut and Re-registered using the key given in the readme file.
Hey Presto - found this software works perfectly as portable USB software with no need for registry items!
Now using Win 7 Unlocking and locking at will, the partition I had locked in Win 10 !

Very interesting program, but i have what I think is a serious concern (in my case).

I have my main PC with THREE bootable Windows partitions.
1. Windows 7 Ultimate x64,
2. Windows 10 Pro x64 1809 (spare)
3. Windows 10 Pro x64 1709 (main)

My questions in order of importance are:
a). Could you detail the procedure required to have each Windows to be able to have full access to any BitLocker encrypted volumes. ie All Windows version need to access the same data on that one PC.

b). Would this PC require one license or THREE..?

I am seriously considering purchasing your program. Item b) is not a problem either way for me. Pricing seems reasonable.

TIA.

BobT, Windows 10 can access the volumes encrypted in Windows 7 without any problems, but the volumes encrypted in Windows 10 that you want to access in Windows 7 must be encrypted using compatible mode. All three of your operating systems support BitLocker, so you don't need to buy our product.

Once I have encypted, and want to copy individual files to another disk, will the resulting files on the receiving disk still be encrypted or will they be unencrypted? Or does it depend on the program one uses to do the copying?

Reply   |   Comment by John  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

John,

Unencrypted...
With an encrypted drive partition, using physical or virtual disks, anything written to the drive is encrypted before it's written, and anything accessed is decrypted on-the-fly as well, so if you open a file on an encrypted disk, it's decrypted 1st -- if you copy or move a file on an encrypted disk, again it's decrypted 1st.

My 1st concern isn't about how well Hasleo BitLocker works, but rather that BitLocker is proprietary, owned & I assume trademarked etc. by Microsoft. Hasleo BitLocker obviously isn't a direct copy of the Microsoft code, e.g. no TPM requirements, but is Microsoft going to someday take notice, and legal action, so Hasleo's product is no longer available or supported in some countries?

Comparing Hasleo's & Microsoft's BitLocker, Microsoft's BitLocker can get pretty complicated to set up and administer, though it couldn't be easier to turn on its default setup for personal use in Windows 10 Pro -- simply flip the switch at Control Panel -> System and Security -> BitLocker Drive Encryption. Hasleo's BitLocker Anywhere is software that has to be installed -- that's hardly difficult, but there are people who prefer avoiding software installs.

Microsoft uses TPM to store the key -- you use a USB stick that has to be plugged in at boot time otherwise. Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere doesn't use a TPM, so you have to enter a password. Using TPM [Trusted Platform Module] is maybe a bit controversial -- vulnerabilities have been found in the past, and the VeraCrypt FAQ faults TPM as mainly good for a false sense of security. Note: you may have to enable TPM [if desired] in the bios.

Microsoft includes a limited feature set version of BitLocker with Windows 10 Home, but it's only made available if the device meets specific hardware requirements, e.g. TPM, may go by a different name, and documentation is both sparse & a bit sketchy. In fact the main proof that it's even available in Win10 Home is that some devices running the Home version of 10 have it enabled out of the box. One of the Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere selling points is that it works in Windows 10 Home, period.

Microsoft BitLocker is designed so that an enterprise IT dept. can unlock encrypted drives/partitions, and for personal use you can export & save a key. Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere lets you save/export a key. There's some concern that Microsoft's BitLocker includes a back door -- there are some people concerned that software out of Asia may contain back doors. The open source, audited VeraCrypt has no back doors and does not support any sort of password recovery -- lose you password [or optional key file] and you're locked out of your encrypted drives, period.

VeraCrypt is generally considered more secure than either brand of BitLocker, but it's also slightly more work to set up, and the documentation & options can seem confusing. VeraCrypt can be used portably, e.g. you can include both VeraCrypt & encrypted VHDs [Virtual Hard Disks] on a USB stick. VeraCrypt also lets you nest an undetectable encrypted drive inside an outer encrypted drive.

I had previous issues with BitLocker when MS updated my system from Win10 Pro to Enterprise. I had issues with some folders failing to decrypt in the past, the password was not the issue but the key MS supplied to the system, it got wiped out after a virus infection.
Now, I use encrypted vaults for sensitive files and got read off the BitLocker because you depends on the key in the system that is embedded in the registries. With the encrypted vaults you can take your data on a USB stick or drive and you do not wary about any issues with the key(s) or installations or decryption.

Reply   |   Comment by Matt  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Matt,

All the docs I've read say that for personal [non-enterprise] use Microsoft's BitLocker stores the key either using the TPM, or if that's not present on the device, a USB stick that must be inserted before booting if the system drive is encrypted. OTOH I have TPM disabled in the bios, flipped the switch to enable BitLocker on one of my drive partitions [using win10 pro], and get a dialog asking if I want to use a password or smart card to unlock the drive, so in some cases you may be correct about storing keys in the registry.

BitLocker -- Microsoft's & I think Hasleo's BitLocker Anywhere -- let you encrypt a USB stick, same as any other drive. Encrypted Safes or Vaults are VHDs [Virtual Hard Disks] that are encrypted the same as a physical drive partition. VeraCrypt can easily create encrypted VHDs; Microsoft's BitLocker can encrypt them, but reports I've read say it's a bit iffy to get working properly; I didn't find anything about using BitLocker Anywhere with VHDs, but my guess is that while VeraCrypt Mounts & Decrypts the VHD, you'd use Windows to mount a Mircosoft format .vhd file, using BitLocker Anywhere to encrypt & decrypt it as if it was a physical drive.

Dear Hasleo Software

In which way is Hasleo BitLocker better than free VeraCrypt or
TrueCrypt ??

Reply   |   Comment by Georgina  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Georgina, Hasleo does not supply the BitLocker, it uses the existent OS BitLocker and just makes it easier to use and manipulate.

Reply   |   Comment by Matt  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

You're completely wrong. After analyzing the BitLocker drive encrypted by Windows hundreds of times, we finally implemented the encryption algorithm ourselves, which is fully compatible with the Windows BitLocker encryption algorithm. We have Linux and Mac versions, which can prove everything.

Georgina, I think it's mainly a personal preference. If you like open source software, then Veracrypt/TrueCrypt is the best choice. If you trust Microsoft then BitLocker should be a better option. Personally, I think Veracrypt is too complex and suitable for professionals, BitLcoker is simpler and easier to use. I have a question. Does VeraCrypt supports encrypting Windows System partition on a GPT disk?

Reply   |   Comment by Hasleo Software  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Hasleo Software, you wrote:
"...which is fully compatible with the Windows BitLocker encryption algorithm...", to be fully compatible it must have the same call routings, same key(s) used as MS. same places stored the password(s), same memory configurations and so on, in other words, it is almost carbon copy from the original MS Bit Locker.

To be different, please numerate the differences from the MS BitLocker, is it faster, is it smaller, is it portable, is it, less complex, and so on.

Hasleo Software, as you don't rely on the MS Bitlocker engine does that mean you *could* build an edition that would run in versions of windows that predate MS bitlocker? Like Windows server 2008 SP2?

The big question is, can this software decrypt a USB drive if it was BitLocker encrypted on a different workstation?

Reply   |   Comment by David  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

David, Yes, of course, as long as you have the correct access password or BitLocker recovery key.

Reply   |   Comment by Hasleo Software  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

David, No it can not, a workstation may have a different key. MS key(s) reside in the OS drive (server) and you could have a different key on another PC attached to the server. The complexity of passwords and keys may render your USB drive not accessible in the future, depending where that drive is integrated in or plugged in the network.
BitLocker is very fussy about where the encrypted key was issued. If you change the server or the server crashes for good and the original key was there, there is no way can can ever decrypt the USB drive.

Would this software provide any help for those who already have Window 10 Pro (with bitlocker feature) but the laptop do not have TPM feature, because without TPM, it is so impractical to use USB drive to lock and unlock Bitlocker.

Reply   |   Comment by rzl  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Even if your computer does not have a TPM, you can unlock the BitLocker drive directly with a password, so unlocking the BitLocker drive with a USB drive is not the only option.

Reply   |   Comment by Hasleo Software  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Hasleo Software, this is also my question. Is there any benefit to install your software on a Windows 10 Pro system and would you recommend the installation?

Reply   |   Comment by Lilien  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Lilien, Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere is primarily to provide BitLocker disk encryption for Windows Home users, and in fact it can also run on Windows Pro/Enterprise editions. We know that Windows 10 Pro edition fully supports BitLocker, so you can use the BitLocker feature built into Windows directly.

Hasleo Software,

Thank you for participating "live" during the offer/user comments period -- much appreciated!

The idea of having some sort of security/privacy on our systems seems good, especially for a laptop/notebook computer that is more likely to be stolen.

However, for those of us who are not familiar with implementing BitLocker on our system, and who (like me) have, so far, been hesitant to turn it on, could you describe and compare, in layman's terms, what would be the advantages (and any disadvantages/"gotcha's") of using your BitLocker Anywhere vs simply turning the feature on via MS Windows own built-in settings?

Since last visiting the feature (and trying, then removing) BitLocker in Windows 8.1 prior to the automatic updates/upgrades to Windows 10, I just confirmed to myself that it is no longer available in the settings of Windows 10 Home (which, no doubt, has been known and obvious to many).

Also, the description above mentions "almost all the features" -- which ones are NOT available -- anything critical?

Interestingly, I did a search on this topic and the second result was a reference to your product:

https://www.easyuefi.com/bitlocker-anywhere/resource/how-to-turn-on-bitlocker-in-windows-10-home.html

(The first search result was this; but too bad the thread is now locked, or you could add your solution to it:)

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10/bitlocker-on-windows-10-home-edition/4fd2eecd-2931-4709-ad4e-85bbf3e241f0

...and many, many others, of course -- this is a popular topic with a lot of people interested but, like me, too timid to "experiment" on their one-and-only system for fear of somehow getting irreversibly locked out.

So, a little hand-holding please?

Can I trust it with my important doc files? I can buy the software later on, but can someone please tell me if an upgrade to Win 10 Pro is the better (headache-less) solution? I am wary of Win 10 Pro because it has remote desktop etc. things that my friend says are dangerous for non-tech guys like me.

Thanks

Sauerkraut, I think Dave is on about the security of the files, not if they will be safe due to data loss.

Dave, you can switch remote desktop off in 10 pro

Reply   |   Comment by jim  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Dave,

As Jim posted, remote desktop can be turned off, though you *might* make a case that if your system was breached, the attacker(s) might re-activate remote desktop if Windows included it, e.g. win10 pro. In general however *in my opinion*, they'd be more inclined to use non-Microsoft software for remoting, including that code in their malware.

Where win10 pro is more often thought worth it, is its ability to delay updates &/or version upgrades. If/when Microsoft pushes out an update or upgrade that causes problems, with win10 Home, you're stuck until Microsoft issues a fix. I have a tablet running win10 Home, and while it wasn't a huge issue because I only use it very occasionally, a few versions back it was unusable [Windows wouldn't start] for 3 months after a new win10 version was pushed out -- eventually an Insider build worked, but I had to test every new Insider build that was released, & when it didn't work, restore a disk image backup.

That said, if you can store the files you're interested in encrypting wherever you want, an encrypted VHD [also called safes or vaults] might be the easiest option, plus you could copy the single file making up the VHD wherever you wanted for additional backup protection. Copy it to 2 or more cloud accounts and it would take a pretty severe natural disaster before you lost your stuff. ;)

Dave, Win10 Pro has many advantages over the home editions e.g. one can pause feature updates for a LONG time if you want and remote desktop by default is not available over the internet unless you do something really stupid like declaring a cellular modem or ADSL USB modem that is assigned a public IP number to be a private network... but it is a simple matter to disable remote desktop over a LAN or WAN anyway... I use it every day here with the laptop I am RDP'ing into is a Vista Home Premium that has one of those faulty Nvidia mobile chips so does not display properly on its own monitor. Never had any trouble with it and never had any trouble with servers and workstations that had port forwarding to non-standard ports over the internet... never had any of them attacked... would have been different if they had been on the default RDP ports though that is for certain. At worst it would have been denial of service attacks rather than unathorised RDP logins since they would have to know available login credentials to even try and brute force the passwords and likely lock out an existing account.
