Bitlocker – Backup Recovery Key to Skydrive

October 26, 2014

A new feature in Windows 8 is the ability to save your Bitlocker recovery key to your Skydrive account.  However this is only available if the following are true:

  • Your computer is not a domain member
  • The user account you are using on the computer is connected to a Windows Live ID

When you enable Bitlocker one of the options for backing up your recovery key will be Skydrive if the above are true.

If you are a domain member, then you will not get this option however you can save your recovery key to AD.
