Re: Remove dialog offering to encrypt removable media

This was configured by your ePO administrator \ Security department. It is there for a purpose. Are you the administrator? Are you the end user?

It is unlikely that the message will be removed as a company wants removeable devices to be encrypted, otherwise they would be readonly. It keep confidential information secure with a password, otherwise if they are dropped in the parking lot, someone would be able to read potentially sensative information.

If you are the administrator you should be familiar with the policy and how to remove that functionality. If not please contact support.

Re: Remove dialog offering to encrypt removable media

It is a pretty open question without a lot of details not provided.Haven't used FRP in depth for awile but I seem to remember that you can. If your file is on an encrypted stick for portability, you can.

I realize I am giving you a general point in one driection, but its the best I can do based on what you gave me.
