Bad Sector After disk gets encrypted?


I am in one of my client engagements and an interesting question came up during the discussion. What if we encrypt the disk (ofcourse if there is no bad sector), but few days later somehow some sector goes bad? Then what?

I am guessing, since the full encryption is done once, so shouldn't be a problem. But I thought, let's ask the experts Smiley Happy

RE: Bad Sector After disk gets encrypted?

you'll have exactly the same problems whether the disk is, or isn't encrypted.
