Dynmaic DIsk Encrypted by McAfee Drive Encryption

In one system we could see that Dynamic disks were being encrypted, below is the attachment for the same. Also only C volume is encrypted, G volume isn't. The  

As per Drive Encryption, only basic disks are encrypted.

In DE policy, we have selected to encrypt all Disks. 

I also checked with McAfee Drive Encryption support team, but the engineer didn't explain/advise  properly. Support Engineer name was Sarathi.

Can someone check and get back to me on this??

@Nagesh-123 Thanks for choosing Support Community.

I checked the screenshot and noticed all the drives are Dynamic. 
I hope, the following article can help to understand in detail: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB87219

Re: Dynamic Disk Encrypted by McAfee Drive Encryption

Hello Jagan,

As per the KB, dynamic disks cannot be encrypted, but here they are encrypted (refer the screenshot).

I want to know how they are encrypted as it contradicts the Drive Encryption principle

If these are encrypted, then there is any flaw in Drive Encryption software

Re: Dynamic Disk Encrypted by McAfee Drive Encryption

@Nagesh-123 I will have this SR reopened to debug further.

In order to find the cause, you may have to submit the logs from the same system. Finding the cause is restricted to log availability. In case, the log has been overwritten then may not be able to find how did it get encrypted. 

However, will try my best to find the reason.
