Thank you for the comprehensive information.Here is my article that shows how to use bitlocker on Win10/11 Home despite the lack of "modern standby" or whatever MS thinks is needed:
I followed all your steps to the letter.
After the cmd command "manage-bd -on c: -used",
I had the "Used Space Only encryption is now in progress" come up in the same cmd window.
I then rebooted to Win11 Home, and ran the cmd command "manage-bde c: -protectors -add -rp -tpm".
The following cmd line came up, showing an error:
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.22000.613]

C:\Windows\system32>manage-bde c: -protectors -add -rp -tpm
BitLocker Drive Encryption: Configuration Tool version 10.0.22000

Key Protectors Added:
ERROR: An error occurred (code 0x8031005a):
This version of Windows does not support this feature of BitLocker Drive Encryption. To use this feature, upgrade the operating system.
Would this have anything to with the fact that I'm running Windows 11 Home?
Bear in mind, I have just added a "GC-TPM2.0_S 2.0" module to my existing Gigabyte board.
Apparently I didn't need it, as my system shows TPM is active, and the above cmd of yours verified it was active and working.
But it's the correct module for my board (Z390-UD rev.1).
Any hints on the error message would be greatly appreciated.
Even tho I got the error, would my drive be encrypted (as per the cmd message)?
I assume not, as there'es no LOCK showing over the Drive icon in Folder view.
