Question here! Does anyone knows exactly what the
protection_status
column on
bitlocker_info
represents? I am trying to figure a query that gets either if Bitlocker is enabled or not. I was using that column to be
1
as Bitlocker is enabled but now I am seeing results with
0
but Bitlocker is in fact enabled.

Would
encryption_method
!= “None” mean bitlocker is enabled?

protection_status
can be 0 if the drive isn’t finished encrypting yet

Yah, but that does not mean that bitlocker is enabled or not.

Can be half encrypted and enabled or half encrypted but disabled

My personal filter is checking
percentage_encrypted == '100'
because unless it’s 100% done, I consider it not encrypted

But again, I need to know either Bitlocker is enabled or not, I have another query for the percent and the encryption status.

You probably want to check
conversion_status
then in addition to
protection_status
. I don’t remember all of the values it could be, but that should tell if it is in the process of encrypting which would indicate bitlocker is enabled

Is there a place to check
conversion_status
result meanings?

A lot of the windows specific tables are just WMI queries, so TechNet is the best place to look up possible values
