Sorry, I haven't completely gone through the user guide and my question is simpler than the other Bitlocker question in this forum. Nothing fancy here. I want to backup my work laptop which is Windows 7 x64 Enterprise and drive is encrypted with Bitlocker. I am a local admin so I can manage Bitlocker and have access to the keys. Is it as simple as I install HDM 14 Pro, suspend Bitlocker, and backup with HDM in Windows? And if I have to restore, I assume I would suspend Bitlocker (if possible) and restore from the HDM recovery environment (if I had to restore the entire partition)? Let me know if it's easier or harder than I make it seem. I've never managed Bitlocker and don't know how it affects backing up and restoring using a recovery environment. Obviously files are not an issue with a healthy Windows environment, but I want to be able to recover the entire partition if necessary. I'm also thinking about swapping the HD for an SSD for performance and I've also never done a migration with Bitlocker. Thx.
