I want to back up my machine using Acronis.  But it says it can't back it up until I turn off Bitlocker.
When I go to Control Panel --> System and Security --> Bitlocker Drive Encryption, it says "BitLocker waiting for activation".  There is an icon to "Turn on BitLocker".  

Do I have to turn it on before I turn it off?
