Windows 10: BitLocker Status question?

    BitLocker Status question?

    Hi guys,

    I read this great tutorial posted here.

    When I enabled BitLocker, I selected to encrypt the ENTIRE drive instead of the used disk space only.

    My question is, what would the MANAGE-BDE -STATUS show under Conversion Status if I would of had selected the option to encrypt USED Disk Space Only?
    Would it still show as FULLY ENCRYPTED?

    Any examples please would be greatly appreciated.
