Good morning all,

We will be using ForensITs migration tool soon and wanted to ask if anyone has had experience of migrating a laptop that is bitlocker encrypted?
Does it work?
Does the recovery key get tied to the new domain computer account in ADUC (if your the new group policy is setup that way)?
Any experiences shared would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

BitLocker works at a file system level and is transparent to user-mode applications like User Profile Wizard, so the migration has no effect. However, If you are migrating from an existing domain, and you have BitLocker recovery keys backed up in Active Directory, you will need an alternative backup.
