Mount Bitlocker To Go USB drives without logging in

I have USB drives on Server 2012 that automatically mount after the Server is restarted.  Generally it takes a manual log in for the drives to mount.  Is it possible to have the USB drives mount without logging in after a restart of the Server?
Thanks.

Hi.

No, it requires a logon. So if you would like to unlock it for backup or whatever purpose, you would need a scheduled task that goes like
manage-bde -unlock x: -rp 025883-227601-686114-444262-317812-476839-311443-552816
(x: being the drive in question and the recovery password being used).

Thanks.  

Two questions:

1. There's no way to conceal the password?

2. What is this series referring to--is it the password?:

1 the mounting would be done by a scriptr and there's no reason to hide the password. Of course you would keep that script unreadable for the normal user
2 that's the recovery password.

Is the script in the Windows scheduled task?

McKnifeCommented:
One would use the task scheduler for that, yes. Tasks that an admin configures are by default not readable by users.

This unlock script would work for a "Bitlocker to Go" USB drive?

McKnifeCommented:
Sure. For any drive, be it USB connected or sata, or esata, or thumbdrive or anything.
