First step: Set the password. Move the mouse pointer over the disk that you want to encrypt, right-click, select Start from the pop-up shortcut menu, eject the BitLocker Drive Encryption window, select encryption, and output the password (Figure 1).

Tip: When you use "BitLocker" to encrypt a disk, you can log on and use the file normally, but "btlocker" automatically blocks hackers and unauthorized users from accessing the drive. When you add a new file to an encrypted drive, BitLocker automatically encrypts the files and the files remain encrypted until they are stored in the encrypted drive, and the files that are copied to the other drive are decrypted.
Second, turn off BitLocker and decrypt the disk
In the WINDOWS7 system, not only can you easily lock the disk, but also the decryption operation is very simple, you can "turn off BitLocker" to achieve disk decryption.
Click start → control Panel, open Control Panel, click System and Security, go to the System and Security window, click BitLocker Drive Encryption, go to the BitLocker Drive Encryption window, and locate the BitLocker Drive Encryption entry. Click "Turn off BitLocker" after the encrypted disk and click "Decrypt Drive" in the pop-up small window to complete the disk decryption (Figure 4).
