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.

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!

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 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…

– pause encryption of disks with BitLocker
– resume encryption of disks with BitLocker
