UWF and bitlocker compatibility in Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am trying to use UWF RAM or Disk based with BitLocker on Windows 10 enterprise build. Is that ok to use them both at the same time since they both use the overlay and may clash or fill up the overlay.

    Thanks in advance for any help

  • You can configure UWF for RAM or DISK, but not both. Bitlocker has nothing to do with UWF as they are separate features. Bitlocker doesn't use an overlay as a standalone feature. Items in the UWF overlay will be encrypted because of Bitlocker. How much impact in filling up the overlay is unknown since depends on the applications and systems. Of course, you have to turn on Bitlocker before enabling UWF.
