A. This is a yes/no answer. The standard BitLocker protection for fixed drives that existed in Windows Vista is still only available in the Ultimate and Enterprise editions. The new BitLocker To Go technology to protect removable media is available in all versions, but only the Ultimate and Enterprise editions can write to BitLocker-protected media. All other Windows 7 versions can only read from BitLocker-protected media.
