One of my USB drives wouldn't unlock, giving me a message

"The BitLocker encryption on this drive isn't compatible with you version of windows. Try opening the drive using a newer version of Windows."

As far as I know i have the latest. i did look for updates after i got this error. i have only used Bitlocker for a couple months, and i don't have much experience with it. i do not care about the data on the drive but i want my drive.

Has anyone got any idea as to why and a possible solution?

If you don't care about the data right click the drive in File Explorer and format it.
