Re: Cannot enable BitLocker: "Insufficient disk space..."
I posted 5 times only because the website did not appear to be allowing me to
post...I know I am not the only person experiencing the disk issue as you can
see by reviewing other posts...but it doesn't look like there is any one
definitive fix to the issue.
I think I did resize my partition, I believe that it was initially 40GB,
then resized to 30.
Pimpin'' ain''t easy but somebody gotta do it...
