It is only a volume encryption. It does not even encrypt any volume slack.

Yep ) , but (for the record) there are sources that (wrongly) call Bitlocker a "full disk encryption"

BitLocker (formerly BitLocker Drive Encryption) is a full disk encryption feature included with the Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7, the Pro and Enterprise editions of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1,[1] and Windows Server 2008 and later. It is designed to protect data by providing encryption for entire volumes.

And. later on that page

BitLocker is a logical volume encryption system. A volume may or may not be an entire hard disk drive, or it can span one or more physical drives.

Its the usual misunderstanding between disk (let alone a full disk) and drive (or volume or partition), with the nice twist of the volume that can be an "entire hard disk drive" …
