Intel Optane SSD

Would anyone know if Mcafee Drive Encryption product has compatibility issues with Intel Optane SSD media ?  Specifically are there issues with Mcafee DE ?  If so is there a compatible version of MDE currently available ?

Re: Intel Optane SSD

The Intel Optane is not supported at this time. Unless McAfee support officially tests it and approves the use of this SSD you could be out of luck.

As for opening a product idea or enhancement request, others would have to vote it in for anyone to officially look at it. You would be better served buying a lottery ticket.

Re: Intel Optane SSD

Hi @jauggie ,

@Former Member  is correct, Intel Optane SSD is currently not supported by McAfee Drive Encryption and would be included in future releases.

Kindly advise you to raise a Product Idea for the same,


Thank you
