    Surface 3 (Atom)
    Hi guys, just bought a brand new Surface 3 tablet online for a friend's birthday. The box was sealed and everything. When she started to use it, we realized it came with a hard drive that had a yellow triangle with an exclamation point and a lock that was open. I've attached photos so you can see. Why is this there? Should I remove it?

    After doing a bit of googling and screwing around with the Surface, I believe it is something called Bitlocker. Does this come with all Surface 3s now? I have my own Surface 3 that does not have that. The only thing I can think of is that the Surface 3 was bought with the intention of being given to a business, so maybe Microsoft pre-configured it for them and added this feature? I really don't have a clue.

    Anyways, how do I get rid of this? Or is this something that I should leave? Thanks in advance for any help
