Only OS partition encrypt using Bitlocker and McAfee MNE module

Hi folks

I have following issue:

when using Bitlocker encryption with TPM throught McAfee Management od Native Encryption module everything works fine, but only system partition is encrypted. If I have 2nd or 3rd partition on disk only 1st is encrypted. Others don't appear in Bitlocker Manager and after execute commang manage-bde -status. What's wrong?

My Bitlocker policies are as screenshot included

Re: Only OS partition encrypt using Bitlocker and McAfee MNE module

I'm not sure I understand the issue.  Bitlocker is capable of encrypting the OS volume and 'fixed data volumes' (as well as removable storage via Bitlocker-to-go).  Are you saying that manage-bde -status does not show these partitions as valid volumes to be encrypted?  Or, are they showing as 'data volumes' in the manage-bde -status output and not being encrypted via your MNE policy?

Yes. Bitlocker does not show these partitions as valid volumes to be encrypted. I don't know why. But this issue occurs only when McAfee MNE is installed. When I uninstall MNE and try encrypt disk manually, Bitlocker recognizes all disks and partitions properly.
