BitLocker Drives Unlocke v1.2 Can Now Lock All Bitlocker Unlocked Drives In Windows 7

Posted In Utilities - By Jack on Tuesday, October 11th, 2011 With No Comments »

If you use BitLocker Drive Encryption to encrypt and secure multiple local drives in Windows 7, you will be frustrated by the process of unlocking all drives one by one. One has to open individual local drives and enter their respective passwords to unlock them. This is both a cumbersome and tiresome user experience. Shouldn’t there be an easier method where it requires users to enter passwords for the local drives and then unlock them with just one click? What if more than one drive has the same password? Do you really want to enter the same password multiple times to unlock all drives?

What about locking the drives after unlocking them? Windows 7 does not provide any easy option to lock the drives. Users have to lock the drives one by one via the command line.

Meet BitLocker Drives Unlocker (BLDU), a portable app we are releasing to the public free of charge that makes it easier to unlock and lock your BitLocker encrypted drives in Windows 7. All drives locked with BitLocker are listed on the main interface, just enter their passwords and hit Unlock. To lock the drives, select one from the drop-down list (at the bottom of the window) and hit Lock. Or just click Lock All to lock all drives together. It’s that simple! If you have same password for all drives, tick the Same password for all checkbox. You can also run it on system startup. In short, BitLocker Drives Unlocker is the fastest way to unlock and lock your Bitlocker encrypted drives.

BitLocker Drives Unlocker has been tested on both Windows 7 x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) systems.

You will find the Lock options at the bottom of the main interface. Clicking Lock All will lock all unlocked drives in one go.

However, if you want to selectively lock the drives, just pick the drive from Unlocked Drives drop-down list and then click Lock to lock the drive. You can lock other unlocked drives in similar fashion.

When the drive is locked, it will appear in the list ready to be unlocked again.

BitLocker Drives Unlocker supports both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 7.
