    BitLocker


    I use Bit Locker encryption on all of my Thumb drives that contain personal data.
    Has anyone else of late, noticed the slow down of Bit Locker USB full encryption process. 7-8hrs to encrypt a Sandisk 128 GB Thumb drive is ridiculous.

    USB2 or 3? What do you have set for cipher strength? The default was changed in 1511 to use XTS although I didn't notice it being slower, perhaps it is.

    I don't have such large USB keys bit it does seem very slow - there is no point encrypting the whole volume if the drive is new or it has been encrypted before so you could consider that also.

    Did you encrypt with data on the drive or without anything on it ?
