BitLocker is a program that allows you to encrypt files in OS Windows. It is a software that is an official tool from Microsoft and allows you to access information that is recorded on disks with BitLocker protection. The software works on different builds of Windows OS. BitLocker can be downloaded for a computer with 32 and 64-bit system. Do not forget that it must be installed on OS Windows XP and Vista. In OS Windows 7 and above, this software is built into the system shell. On newer operating systems, you do not need to install additional encryption algorithms.

About the purpose

The program is suitable for users who want to encrypt external drives using BitLocker technology. The software is suitable for disks that were formatted in the FAT file system. By unlocking them, you will see all the data that is recognized automatically. After that, you need to enter the authorization data. The main problem of logging on older versions of OS Windows is the lack of authorization. There is nothing strange in this, because OS Windows XP and Vista do not have a built-in encryption mode with the BitLocker algorithm. The developers have not added the BitLocker encryption feature in the new ServicePack updates. So the update that allows you to protect flash drives and SD-cards on old OS must be installed manually. Although it is not quite convenient, but the installation takes a few seconds. The installation files take a few kilobytes. You can download them for free. Having downloaded all the files, you don't need to reboot the system and perform auxiliary settings and operations.
