Using the command line to manage two features in BitLocker.

1. Enable startup pin once the volume is already encrypted.
2. Disable the pin that is enabled in #1

I have sucessfully performed step 1 by using the following:
cscript %systemroot%\system32\manage-bde.wsf -protectors -add %systemdrive% -tpmandpin 1234

When I try to remove it with the following...
cscript %systemroot%\system32\manage-bde.wsf -protectors -delete C: -Type TPMAndPin

I get the BitLocker recovery when I start the PC. Apparently I am not removing it correctly.... any ideas?
