Re: EE050014: File Access Error


you have several users assigned to one Notebook and all but one are able to Sign in. Only one User is prohibited by a corrupted PreBootfileSector for signing in.

As far as it belongs to our company we decided to decrypt the Notebook using EETechCD and afterwards just let the System boot into Windows and let Endpoint Encryption do it's job again (don't forget to save the new XML-File für recovery). We don't like this workaround but it works and hopefully there will be Hotfix/Patch for preventing this in future.
