Get-BitLockerVolume

Gets information about volumes that BitLocker can protect.
Get-BitLockerVolume [[-MountPoint] <String[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-BitLockerVolume cmdlet gets information about volumes that BitLocker Drive Encryption can protect. You can specify a BitLocker volume by drive letter, followed by a colon (C:, E:). If you do not specify a drive letter, this cmdlet gets all volumes for the current computer.

You can use this cmdlet to get BitLocker volumes to use with other cmdlets, such as the Enable-BitLocker cmdlet or the Add-BitLockerKeyProtector cmdlet. You can also use this cmdlet to view the following information about a BitLocker volume:

-- VolumeType. Data or Operating System.-- Mount Point. Drive letter.-- CapacityGB. Size of drive.-- VolumeStatus. Whether BitLocker currently protects some, all, or none of the data on the volume. -- Encryption Percentage. Percent of the volume protected by BitLocker.-- KeyProtector. Type of key protector or protectors.-- AutoUnlock Enabled. Whether BitLocker uses automatic unlocking for the volume.-- Protection Status. Whether BitLocker currently uses a key protector to encrypt the volume encryption key.
