Windows 10: Changing the BitLocker Recovery Key on an Already Encrypted OS drive?

    Changing the BitLocker Recovery Key on an Already Encrypted OS drive?


    Is there a way I can change the BitLocker recovery key to a new one on my encrypted OS drive?

    Do I need to first Suspend BitLocker to do so?

    Is there a tutorial on this here?

    Thanks

    Yes


    Decrypt the drive, then encrypt again.
