    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.

    Using the graphical Bitcloker Control Panel can only take you so far. For proper administration use manage-bde.exe and yes, you can create a new key, then delete the old one, without having to decrypt and encrypt again the whole drive.
