asked on

bitlocker to go

are there any costs involved with bitlocker to go, or is it part of the standard windows OS, or do you need to purchase any sort of policy application that manages BitLocker to go policies across your windows devices (this is linked to automatic encryption of any USB drives plugged into a WIndows 7 laptop).

Is it also possible to deploy bitlocker to go policies to certain devices via group policy, or does this need configuring manually.

Say for example you already had a non bitlocker encrypted USB, is the policy going to wipe that encryption off the device and replace it with bitlocker encryption before you can write to it, which may disgruntle a few users?
No. The policy does nothing "on" the device. It will only prevent write access if you configure that.
