Bitlocker issues with Windows 7 Professional

Hi,

I have a Windows 7 Professional machine but when I want to extend a partition I get a error. I have attached a screenshot with the error.

How is this possible because I am using Windows 7 Professional and this edition doesn't have Bitlocker.

yes, in a way. Disabling BDESVC is supposed to be disabled by default on win7 pro. I am trying to tell you are missing the files that your system is trying to use. Bitlockerswirls only with NTFS partions and in your case it's trying to access the encryption module of bitlocker. Which you are missing. Have you tryed to recover the files using the installation disk and doing a repair? Schedule Chkdsk and reboot to see it fixes some drive errors as well. and Have you thought about using 3rd party tool like partition magic to extend the drive?

Not a solution, but you could use paragon partition manager instead...

Hope this helps:

"Windows 7 Professional has everything that Home Premium does, but with business and "enthusiast" features like file encryption, location-aware printing and advanced backup.

Windows 7 Enterprise is for businesses buying OS licenses in bulk, so you probably won't have to worry about it (unless you're paid to). It's got everything Professional does, but with a few additions like BitLocker full-disk encryption and direct access capability, so you don't have go through a VPN for remote access."

Yes but I have Windows 7 Professional so I shouldn't have bitlocker. And I don't have it because it doesn't appear in my configuration screen. So why is windows complaining about Bitlocker?

Will you be able to translate the error in english?

emieldmzAuthor Commented:
Here the translation:

Bitlocker-station encryption can't be used, because essential Bitlocker-systemfiles are missing or damaged. Use Windows startup recovery to recover these files.

Ihave tried to use startup recovery and sfc /scannow but that also didn't resolve this issue.

Try this:

Run this command, Go to Start > Run and type this 'fsutil behavior set disableencryption 1' (without quotes)
Then restart the system
and then try what your were trying to do.

Have you tryed to disable BDESVC Service? BITS Service is included with Win7 Ultimate that is what part of bitlocker pro does not have, but for system restore, certicates, volume information handling, and a few other intentionally unmentioned reasons. Bitlocker IS installed by default on Win7 Professional not BITS. You are missing required files that work with windows7 Ultimate BITS service so attempting to change system volume information like your doing is invalid at the moment. You have reached a win7 professional intentional limitation. Hope that explains your situation clearly.

If disabling BDESVC does not work

The same error when I run the command 'fsutil behavior set disableencryption 1' and disable the service BDESVC. Russel you say that is disabling BDESVC does not work then?

I have tried to disable the service, run a chkdsk without success. Next I am going to try to run Partition Manager.

Whe I try to do this then I also get a error and the program crashes. It seems like that I have to re-install my laptop because I also get a error when I try to install Service Pack 1.

I would agree. Are you ready for format?
