    Assume I have a partition which is currently encrypted by Bitlocker.
    The Bitlocker key to access it is known.

    How can I convert it back to a non-encrypted "normal" partition?
    ..of cause without loosing current content
    .....and without backup of current content then re-format partition and restore.

    The convert should be performed "in-place"

    is this possible at all?
