How to migrate to Windows 10 with BestCrypt Volume Encryption

BestCrypt and BCWipe are already built to support Windows 10.
Yet if you use BestCrypt Volume Encryption to encrypt your system volume, please follow our step-by-step instructions:

1. Right-click on the BestCrypt Volume Encryption shortcut and select 'Run as administrator' command.


2. Find the volumes marked as 'System' or 'Boot' and if they are encrypted, just decrypt.
NOTE: Your system may also have a single 'System and Boot' volume or 'Boot' only. If so, just decrypt.


3. Right-click on the volume to be decrypted and select 'Decrypt Volume' from the pop-up menu.


4. Enter password.


5. Wait for the process to complete.


6. Make sure both System and Boot volumes are decrypted (if applicable). Decrypted volumes are shown in blue.


7. You may now upgrade to Windows 10.

NOTE:
There is no need to decrypt non-system volumes or uninstall BestCrypt Volume Encryption.
REMEMBER to encrypt the volumes again once you're running Windows 10.

 

>About Windows 10 Upgrade Process

Jetico Technical Support tests have shown that the Windows 10 upgrade process operates in a very simplified environment with only a small number of necessary components loaded. Unfortunately, this does not include BestCrypt Volume Encryption modules. Being unable to bypass our protection, Windows 10 fails to operate on an encrypted drive and reverts to all changes previously done.
