I have a T470 (Windows 10 Pro) with a Toshiba NVMe disk and recently bought a Samsung 970 Pro in order to replace the original one.
I put the two drives on another computer but the original drive seems to be bitlocked. So, I put the original drive back to check for the bitlocker status. Here is the info from the manage-bde -status command:
Disk volumes that can be protected with
BitLocker Drive Encryption:
Volume C: [Windows]
Size: 237.23 GB
BitLocker Version: 2.0
Conversion Status: Used Space Only Encrypted
Percentage Encrypted: 100.0%
Encryption Method: XTS-AES 128
Protection Status: Protection On
Lock Status: Unlocked
Identification Field: Unknown
How am I going to clone the drive? Do I need to disable any protection before starting the process? Or am I just going to put the two drives together and run a clonning software? Any suggestions for a software?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I don't know what you need to do, but if it were mine, I would turn off bitlocker and let it finish before I began the clone process

I managed to migrate to the new drive by first disabling the bitlocker and then using dd (in Ubuntu) to clone the disk.
Everything is fine. Problem Solved.
