Explain like I’m five: let’s say a file or volume was encrypted by MS Bitlocker. Why couldn’t MS configure Windows to detect when a process was trying to encrypt that file or volume and kill the process? “Sorry, that file is already encrypted. Process closed.”

Wouldn’t this stop ransomware dead in its tracks? Why wouldn’t Windows have that basic awareness of the file system – right from the start of the boot process – to stop something from getting double-encrypted? I figure there must be an obvious reason why this isn’t a thing.
