Microsoft rushed to investigate the problem with the latest Windows 11 update

Windows 11 users need to note this to avoid losing data due to Microsoft's new changes.

Microsoft will enable BitLocker encryption by default on all devices with Windows 11 24H2 installed, including new installs and reinstalls. Although this feature helps secure data, it also poses a risk of data loss if users are not careful.

Starting with Windows 11 24H2, Microsoft will automatically enable BitLocker encryption during the installation or reinstallation of the operating system. This applies to both Windows 11 Pro and Home. In particular, not only partition C is encrypted, but all other partitions connected to the machine will also be encrypted during the reinstallation process.

BitLocker encryption will be enabled by default starting with Windows 11 24H2.

For Windows 11 Home, BitLocker encryption is only applied if the device manufacturer enables encryption in UEFI. Therefore, computers that build their own configuration may not be affected.

While BitLocker encryption helps protect data, it can also lead to data loss if users are not careful. If a BitLocker encrypted drive becomes corrupted or a user forgets their recovery password, they can lose access to all data on the drive.

Users can also turn off BitLocker manually during the installation process or reinstall Windows 11 to avoid data loss. However, Microsoft also recommends that users back up data before turning off BitLocker.

Microsoft said it is investigating reports of VPN connection errors after installing the Windows 11 April 2024 update.

Security update KB5036893 was released on April 9 for all supported versions of Windows 11, and some users reported that VPN connections with TPM-backed certificates did not work after installing the patch.

VPN connections will be affected by update KB5036893 for Windows 11.

Reddit user Flo-TPG said the Windows 11 update caused a “cannot find certificate” error when trying to use a VPN connection. Shortly after, Microsoft warned that VPN connections may fail after installing this April 2024 security update, and the company said it was “investigating user reports and will provide more information in the coming days.”

The only workaround currently is to uninstall update KB5036893. In that context, Microsoft says that it is planning to release a solution “in an upcoming release,” which suggests that a hotfix will be deployed soon.

Users are advised to temporarily remove KB5036893 if they want to use VPN.

This latest VPN issue comes nearly a year after Microsoft had to fix major speed issues affecting L2TP/IPsec VPN connections in Windows 11 caused by a bug fix. The company has a Windows Insider program designed to detect bugs in early versions of Windows updates, but security patches can often cause unexpected problems like these VPN problems.
