BitLocker To Go Reader (bitlockertogo.exe) is a program that works on computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. BitLocker To Go Reader allows you to open and view the content of removable drives that have been protected (or encrypted) with BitLocker Drive Encryption in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. BitLocker To Go Reader allows people running Windows Vista/7/8 to share their BitLocker-protected data on removable drives, such as USB flash drives or external hard drives, with anyone running Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP.
To open files on an encrypted drive, you need to unlock the drive using BitLocker To Go Reader and then copy the files to your computer. Once you copy the files from the encrypted drive, they will no longer be protected by BitLocker in the new location, even though they'll still be protected on the encrypted drive.
