Pause and Resume Bitlocker Encryption Operation

Maybe a bit of a useless one but  you can control the encryption process of a drive if you find that the process is hindering your progress on a machine using the commands below.

manage-bde –pause driveletter :

When you are ready to start encrypting the drive again, type the following command:

Manage-bde –resume driveletter :

I'm not sure how much value this offers as with MDT 2012, you can now pre-encrypt drives to negate the need to perform the encryption step post Windows deployment
