Bitlocker Hack : Disable USB bitlocker encryption message

For those of us who are used to adding the USB removable devices for a quick read or write but get blocked by the BitLocker messages such as “Your Device is not encrypted – Please encrypt your device”.

Here’s a quick bypass fix:

Please Note:
#1 – This is not a permanent fix since the policies roll back happen within the GPO managed devices.
#2 – You’re responsible for your own registry hacks
#3 – You will need to apply this each time you want to write to a removable USB device.
#4 – You will need admin rights to your system registry

Fix:

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Policies\Microsoft\FVE!RDVDenyWriteAccess
Change the value to 0 from 1.
