Hey, Doctor Scripto. Is there a nice simple way to see if drives are Bitlocker encrypted?

A most excellent question! You can the Get-BitlockerVolume Cmdlet and filter on the VolumeStatus property. Here’s an example of a line that will show only drives which have Bitlocker enabled.

Get-BitLockerVolume | Where-Object { $_.VolumeStatus -eq ‘FullyEncrypted’ }
