How to Confirm BitLocker is off
How can I confirm that BitLocker is indeed turned off?

Microsoft provides the instructions below, but this is after it
has been on. I see no BitLocker options under Control Panel,
Security.

Thanks, Alan

Scenario 5: Turning off BitLocker Drive Encryption

Scenario 5 describes how to turn off BitLocker Drive Encryption and
decrypt the volume. The procedure is the same for all BitLocker Drive
Encryption configurations on TPM-equipped computers and computers
without a compatible TPM.

When you turn off BitLocker, you can choose to either disable
BitLocker temporarily, or to decrypt the drive. Disabling BitLocker
allows TPM changes and operating system upgrades. Decrypting the drive
means that the volume will once again be readable, and that all the
keys are discarded. Once a volume is decrypted, you must generate new
keys by going through the encryption process again.

Before you start

You must be logged on as an administrator.
The drive must be encrypted.

To turn off BitLocker Drive Encryption

Click Start, click Control Panel, click Security, and then
clickBitLocker Drive Encryption.
From the BitLocker Drive Encryption screen, find the volume on which
you want BitLocker Drive Encryption turned off, and click Turn Off
BitLocker Drive Encryption.
From the What level of decryption do you wantdialog box, click either
Disable BitLocker Drive Encryption or Decrypt the volume as needed.

By completing this procedure, you have decrypted the operating system
volume.
