Hi
I turned on BitLocker on a drive in Win 7. But I can't turn it off. it shows an error when I try to remove password.
How can I turn bitlocker off.

Start -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> BitLocker Drive Encryption -> Locate the drive on which you want to disable BitLocker -> Turn Off BitLocker

Once completing these steps correctly you will be informed that the drive will be decrypted and that decryption may take some time. Click 'Decrpyt the Drive' to continue and turn off the BitLocker protection on the drive.

If this does not work, please provide a screenshot or the full error message.

After a days testing everything, at that time, I formatted all my hard and installed Linux. I'm still using it.

BitLocker has a backdoor.

Using any Microsoft/closed source alternative, you should lose any pretense of security. There is none.

For Linux check out LUKS.
