Policy change

Can anyone give  me an idea on what happens when I change the policy for an encrypted user? For example, change the policy from encrypting just the boot disk to all disks.  What is the effect on the computer?

Thanks

Tom

Re: Policy change

Hi User94632119,

Thank you for posting your question.

The policy will only apply to the disks you have configured in the policy.
You can check this on Drive Encryption Policy > Product Settings > Encryption

Re: Policy change

@User94632119 Thanks for choosing community portal.

The new policy will encrypt all partitions in that system. Lets assume the machine has 3 partitions as below and all three partitions will be encrypted.

Drive C:

Drive 😧

Drive E:

etc...

Note: Boot Disk is not same as Boot partition, it is an external boot disk. The following post may explain more in detail: https://techterms.com/definition/boot_disk
