Re: Encryption - not encrypting second hard drive

HI. Have you tried to wipe the disk and create a partition using the Microsoft Diskpart tool.

Had a similar issue and had to run Diskpart. Try the following

1. Open a Windows command prompt.

2. Type the diskpart and press ENTER:

3. Type the list disk and press ENTER. Make a note of the disk you need to clear, which will normally be Disk 1. This example uses Disk 1.

4. Type the following commands in sequence and press ENTER after each one:

     select disk 1


     create partition primary

     select partition 1

     format fs=NTFS quick



5. Close the command prompt window.
