Bitlocker Windows 10

Last Modified: 2017-04-11
A few months ago I was asked to install Bitlocker on a redundant set of backup computers using external USB hard drives for backup storage.  I supposed the main purpose was to guard in case of physical theft.

I found that the drives, if unlocked, could be accessed over the network.  I thought that a bit odd and not so desirable but nonetheless met the objectives of physical theft.

Now I find that the external drives, even when unlocked, can't be accessed over the network.  This is causing some operational problems.  So I'm wondering if something changed and how to provide selected access to those drives?
