Bitlocker and save issuez

Bitlocker and save issuez

Bitlocker and save issuez

I have a corporate laptop with bitlocker (drive encryption). It is also Win 7.

This is the second environment I have been in with this scenario. I find sometimes working on a split local FE, that saved work disappears. Sometimes I wonder if I clicked save, others I am certain I did and was not prompted to save any objects on close. Clearly the write operation is not completing before more IO happens. In an asynchronous world, I have to save less frequently which is hard when you are in the habit of saving often.

Anyone know of ways to fix or root cause on this issue? I strike out searching for generic io issues. Previously I stuck my USB SSD in to bypass bitlocker but that is not an option here. Security is really tight and justifiably so.

RE: Bitlocker and save issuez

We use bitlocker in Windows 7 and I never experienced a problem with Access or any other application when it came to saving. I have also not heard of any co-workers with issues.

I have had coworkers with similar issues...

So if not bitlocker what might mess with Disk IO? McAfee I have seen both places. But I would not expect it. Nothing else jumps out at me and only optlocks seems remotely similar as an issue, hence the disk IO as primary suspect.

Thanks for the post. Very annoyed at this intermittent problem.
