I tried restoring an Acronis backup to a new Surface Pro 2017 with Win 10 ver 1703. I was told that it could not restore because the Win 10 drive was protected by Bitlocker. Does anyone know of any reason (other that security, which I really don't need on this machine) why I shouldn't just turn off Bitlocker? Will it mess anything up in Windows? jetjock P.S. That machine had many problems, so Microsoft replaced it. I am now on the new one, and it successfully updated itself to ver 1709. I want to back it up before I start installing programs, but if Acronis can't restore the drive, there isn't much point. I looked at the built in Windows backup program, but it won't even allow me to specify a folder to use for back up---only which drive to use.
