    That's not good.

    Do you have the BitLocker recovery key you can use to decrypt the SD card if you can't do so normally before rebuilding to avoid losing the data on the SD?

    It is weird. I can actually copy data off the card no issues. I just can't multi select folders, nor can I unlock. The "error" says:

    Bitlocker (D:)
    The drive protected by BitLocker
    Drive Encryption is already Unlocked.

    Being unlocked is not decrypted.

    Since you can copy the data, it may be best to copy it to another location as a backup, then format the SD to remove BitLocker so you can start over on it.

    Could this all be related to the PIN issue? Do you think a RESET of my tablet will help?

    PIN wouldn't affect BitLocker.

    It appears the SD card is already unlocked though.

    You should still be able to select more than one folder on the SD. Any issue doing so from other locations?

    Copying now and then will reset. I can now get into the properties of the card. This simply weird.
