How to enable Security (Activated, TCG Opal 2.0/eDrive) on WD SSD Dashboard?


Hi there!

I’ve just bought a new WD SSD, the WD Black SN750 NVMe. I installed it on a Windows Dell laptop, installed the WD SSD Dashboard, and turned on BitLocker encryption on my hard drive.

I thought that by turning BitLocker encryption on the SSD, the status for Security on the WD Dashboard application would change from “Not Activated” to “Activated”, but in my case it still shows as not activated.

Are there any additional steps that need to be done so the Dashboard will recognize the BitLocker encryption?
