Active, but not Encrypted

Jump to solution

We've never used Endpoint Encryption before and I'm testing out EEPC 7.0.2 with ePO 4.6.6. I've finally got eveything going smooth: It's installing fine, all my policies are set up, and EEPC is even showing up as Active.

The only thing I have left to solve is that my HDD isn't being encrypted for some reason. I have it set to "Boot disk only" which I thought was fine for a laptop with only one physical hard drive.

Is there something I'm missing?

If you look in disk manager, you'll probably find your machine is booting from a different partition than the one you are storing the data on, so set it to encrypt all drives.

Thanks for the tip! Just changed the policy so we'll see how that goes.

I was a little worried about something. Will encrypting all drives also encrypt USB devices that get plugged into the machines? I wouldn't want that to happen.

No only what the OS considers a "fixed drive"
