Everything showing names of files in bitlocker locked drive

Post by theoldschool » Tue Mar 19, 2019 4:49 pm

I keep financial files in a bitlocker locked drive but if I carry out an everything search it finds the names of these files although they can't be opened. Is there any way of hiding the names of files or directories in my bitlocked drive?

Tools->Options->NTFS->
Deselect "Include in Database" on the Bitlocker drive
