I have Windows 10, and trying to update it to Windows 11. but I got "Setup needs Space to Update" We can't install the latest Windows 11 features and security improvements on your PC due to low disk space.

The drive you're trying to use is encrypted with BitLocker, Choose a different drive and try again.

The drive you're trying to use is encrypted with bitlockerI don't have other drives, so How can I turn off Blocker to avoid this error "The drive you're trying to use is encrypted with BitLocker".
