Enable-BitLockerAutoUnlock

Enables automatic unlocking for a BitLocker volume.

Syntax

Parameter Set: __AllParameterSets

Detailed Description

The Enable-BitLockerAutoUnlock cmdlet enables automatic unlocking for a volume protected by BitLocker Disk Encryption.

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 unlock any data volumes that use automatic unlocking.

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