Guide to Creating BitLocker Scripts for Automating Time Consuming BitLocker Tasks

Scripts to Unlock Lock Pause and Resume BitLocker

Scripts to Unlock Lock Pause and Resume BitLocker Windows 10 encryption: Can’t find BitLocker Windows 10? Tired of manually typing in commands for BitLocker? Why upgrade to windows 10 with BitLocker?

Here is a simple guide to working scripts and commands for saving you days of work trying to work it out in Microsoft Windows 10 BitLocker (and other versions of Windows with BitLocker). The scripts are shown as pictures of contents in this guide, they are not available to download from here as they will depend on how many disks you have BitLocked and their drive names.

Please note that you need to every script as Administrator (right-click and run as administrator). All scripts have been run and tested in Windows 10. Be careful & try these scripts at your own risk, we take no responsibility for any damages.

Stand out from the crowd today with an explainer video that is made from the ground up, helping you sell your products or services. That’s why we bring the best videos.

Below are .cmd scripts and one .ps1 script that helps you do the following actions without manually using the Manage BitLocker interface:

– lock BitLocked disks
– pause encryption of disks with BitLocker
– resume encryption of disks with BitLocker
– unlock all disks locked with BitLocker

Create a .cmd script to Lock All Drives that have BitLocker On: “lock-all-drives.cmd”

lock-all-drives.cmd
Example content of the script “lock-all-drives.cmd”, add as many disks as you have BitLocked using microsoft Windows 10 BitLocker:
manage-bde -lock D:
manage-bde -lock E:
manage-bde -lock F:

etc…

Create a .cmd script to Pause all BitLocker Encrypting… in Progress: “pause-all-drives.cmd”

pause-all-drives.cmd
Example content of the script “pause-all-drives.cmd”, add as many disks as you have BitLocked or are bitlocking in Windows 10:
manage-bde -pause D:
manage-bde -pause E:
manage-bde -pause F:

etc…

Create a .cmd script to Resume all BitLocker Encrypting… in Progress: “resume-all-drives.cmd”

resume-all-drives.cmd
Example content of script “resume-all-drives.cmd”, again add as many disks as you have / are bitlocking:
manage-bde -resume D:
manage-bde -resume E:
manage-bde -resume F:

etc…

Create a simple .cmd script to run a PowerShell Script that allows Unlocking all your disks locked with BitLocker”: “PipeScript.cmd”

PipeScript.cmd
This one is a huge time saver if you have many disks, as otherwise, you would have to painfully unlock every single drive manually in Windows. Very slow and time consuming!

Whether you’re a small company, a startup or a multinational company, our explainer videos can be a very effective method to promote your service, idea or product.

Please note that this script is for running a PowerShell Script, that we will create after this one. The “PiperScript.cmd” allows us to execute a PowerShell script automatically.
Please remember to change ‘YourUserNameHere’ to your username and change the path ‘c:UsersYourUserNameHereScriptsUnlock-Script.ps1’ in the script to the location where you have saved your script.

Example content of script “PipeScript.cmd”:
powershell -command - < c:UsersYourUserNameScriptsUnlock-Script.ps1

Create a PowerShell Script to ask for your password and then unlock all drives automatically: "Unlock-Script.ps1"

Unlock-Script.ps1
Content of script "Unlock-Script.ps1":
$key = Read-Host 'Enter BitLocker Password!' -AsSecureString
Unlock-BitLocker -MountPoint "D:" -Password $key
Unlock-BitLocker -MountPoint "E:" -Password $key
Unlock-BitLocker -MountPoint "F:" -Password $key
Unlock-BitLocker -MountPoint "G:" -Password $key
Unlock-BitLocker -MountPoint "H:" -Password $key

etc...
cmd-line-unlocking-scripts-run

- lock BitLocked disks
- pause encryption of disks with BitLocker
- resume encryption of disks with BitLocker
- unlock all disks locked with BitLocker

Testimonials

“Anders is an amazing artist and animator! I had the pleasure of collaborating with him on a song I produced for Sofi K called “Fall Back Down.” The level of hard work and detail that he put into our music video was unbelievable. He is communicative and gives you detailed descriptions and options of ways to make something work. We sent him examples of some of the imagery, tone, and feel that we were looking for in our animation and he was able to masterfully incorporate these things in. We were blown away by his talent and the way our video came out. I think Anders is doing great things in the world of animation and will continue to impress the people he collaborates with. I’m hoping to work with him again in the future.”

“It is without a doubt that I can say Anders is a unique animator because his goal is not to finish a project and move on, it's to make something he enjoys to make and has pride in and the final product shows us his love of animation.”
