Could anyone advise me of any website that would be the best to learn about the operation, and capabilites of Bitlocker. Main question, is if I have ONE single laptop with bitlocker, can I access that computer's locked data from another computer on the same network IF I have all the correct logon information? And secondarily, I just need the path to learn all about it.

Hi.

You mean, you wonder if a started computer (booted into windows) is accessible via network although it is bitlocked? Yes, it's accessible, Bitlocker has nothing to do with preventing network access, it only protects drives against offline access (mounting drives offline or in other computers after the drive was stolen).

Or do you mean you want to unlock a volume of a networked computer that was not mounted before on that remote computer without using the remote computer?
