Features of BitLocker for Mac Tool

This simple yet powerful BitLocker for macOS and OS X app provides full features to help you use your BitLocker encrypted drives without any limitation.

Full read-write Access to BitLocker Drives

After a BitLocker disk is mounted, you can easily unlock, open and use it. With iBoysoft DiskGeeker, you can view, edit, delete, rename, or create new files on a BitLocker drive. You can also transfer files between Mac and a BitLocker drive freely.

This BitLocker for Mac tool is fast, secure and stable when managing your Windows files on Mac.

Customer Reviews

Selvam Jul. 21, 2019

Thanks for giving this product. Really amazing. Earlier I have struggled with my hard disk to copy from Mac to hard disk, since my hard disk is formatted with NTFS file system , Now I have copy or paste from Mac to hard disk without any issues.

Sofia Nin Apr. 07, 2019

Great software for a Mac OS user like me. It's super easy to install and it makes transferring of files at the same time reading the files much easier as it is compatible with NTFS drives. Really great product and I don't have to worry about backing up my drives anymore!

A MUST-HAVE for Mac. I have tried tuxera and paragon, though it might seem cheaper than the iboysoft drive manager, not sure what would it install with a big size installer , worried about the data integrity of the filesystem.This seems to be the best in market, with an installer 10x less than the competetors.using it is simple , just mount it and you are ready to write on your NTFS drives.

Mrunal P Feb. 03, 2019

Awesome product ever! I have a seagate hardisk 2TB with 1 TB of precious data, but it was configured with Windows PC.Online solutions were prompting to format the hard disk to the APFS format supported by Mac. I couldnt format my harddisk with so much precious data on it. That's when I came across this piece of beauty. Quick installing process. I could use my hdd with both Mac and Windows. Thanks a million!!
