WinRE / WinPE rescue media with bitlocker support can't backup an "unlocked" drive
Finally thought I'd test bitlocker a little more in depth. I can successfully use WinPE rescue media to "unlock" an encrypted bitlocker drive, making the contents of the drive accessible to file explorer, command prompt, etc. It also shows the drive is successfully unlocked in manage-bde -status afterwards and via file explorer unlock icon too. But, even if I close and restart True Image in the WinPE, it still won't proceed to backup the drive and says to "unlock" it or decrypt it. Well, it is unlocked. This is a bug and needs to be fixed. I've submitted feedback through the app with the attached screenshots and a system report.
***EDITED - want to note all screen shots are from within the same WinPE session. I am using a custom WinPESE that has components of Windows such as native Windows File Explorer, to specifically show that the WinPE explorer detects the drive as locked and unlocked after using the encryption key password, but the current Acronis 2019 WinPE application still believes the disk to be "locked" anyway.
