I spent hours waiting for Windows 7 BitLocker Drive Encryption to lock my Toshiba USB of 16gb. It took quite a while so I checked up on the next morning. Then it says



When I click Resume it just goes back to the same state. The USB works though, like when I plug into my computer it asks me for password etc.. (the bad thing is that it cannot be used in Win XP etc). I can still save, edit and open stuff. It's just annoying how the box always pops up and says that.

Any ideas? Thanks

Have you looked at the Event Viewer immediately after the message shows up?

Some quick search seems to indicate you should run CHKDSK /F on this USB drive and see if there's a file system problem.

yeah, it asked me to perform a scan on the USB. I did that and it came up with no problems. Will try the chkdsk now.
