    Upgrade from v1803 to 1809 with BitLocker?

    At the moment, I am planning to hold off on v1809 since there are some issues with this version. Anyways, once the time comes that I decide and go ahead with this feature upgrade (or any feature upgrade), will BitLocker ask for the Recovery Key during the upgrade process? Do I need to suspend BitLocker first before performing any Windows 10 feature upgrade?

    Does anyone have experience with BitLocker during feature upgrade process?

    Thanks in advance!

    I upgraded to 1809 with bitlocker turned on. I didn't suspend it and it didn't ask for recovery key. It was the same in every previous feature update - no special action is required.

    I would suggest making a complete image backup first, verify it, then enable BitLocker on 1803.
    This way, should something go wrong, you have something to fall back on.
