Windows 2012 backup on bitlocker encrypted drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a small company with just one Windows 2012 server. To protect (the data on) the server from being stolen from my office, I enabled bitlocker on all drives. I just setup a Windows Server backup schedule, and selected my bitlocker encrypted USB drive as the destination drive for the backups. But Windows Server Backup formatted the destination drive, so the backup that is on that drive is no longer protected by bitlocker. I cannot see an option to use Windows Server backup with a bitlocker encrypted drive. I makes little sense to have all my drives in the server encrypted by bitlocker, but not the backup...

    Is there a way to accomplish this without reverting to third party backup software?

    Hope some knows the answer to this.

    best regards, Emphyrio.
