I have a hard drive (2TB) encrypted with a folder containing MfeEERM.exe file. When I click on this exe file, a window pops up asking for password. On entering the correct password, another window now opens with header as "McAfee Removable Media Protection 22.214.171.124" showing the data which is inside this encrypted drive as a folder structure. The computer where this HDD is connected does not have any McAfee software installed.
My question is how do I extract the data out from here for me to browse easily? As in the case of a USB encrypted with Bitlocker and then decrypted shows the data in the same volume but here the data is in the "McAfee Removable Media Protection 126.96.36.199" window and not in the volume which was encrypted or which contained the MfeEERM.exe file.
I tried searching the internet and found that I need to install the FRP (FIle and Removable media protection) package in the system and then the drive's file system will be recognized and will get to see the data in the volume. What I also found is that the FRP package is part of McAfee Complete Data Protection (CDA) package. Does anyone have link to the evaluation version of CDA or Endpoint encryption?
MfeEERM.exe is the portable executable that is created when using FRP to create encrypted media. The program provides access to the files without having to have FRP installed. The program has functionality to extract data from the encrypted container.
I believe you need FRP in order to create a new encrypted container and to auto-mount containers that were encrypted by your FRP instance or enterprise license.
Once after authentication you would be able to see the contents inside the container and you can copy the data to you local machine volume for further use. Over here we are not encrypting the files in the removable media, we create a encrypted container in the removable media and then place files within that encrypted container.
