    Hmmm... oddly it's not being added...
    Could in be conflicting with one of my other items there?
    The context menu would only be added for a drive instead that has been encrypted by BitLocker.

    Yep... read that. Mentioned in my first I had BitLocker enabled on my OS drive (one of five drives).

    Do all drives need to be BitLockerd???

    And BTW, I did unblock the file when I downloaded it.

    When you right click on a drive, the context menu will only show if the drive has been encrypted by BitLocker.

    Do you see the context menu when you right click on that "C" drive encrypted by BitLocker?

    I'm so use to using the context menu from desktop I neglected to notice this has to be run on the drive
