MDE 7.1 encrypting non partition space

If a Windows OEM system has a system, recovery and additional storage partitions without a drive letter, will MDE 7.1.1 still encrypt it or will it only encrypt partitions with letters?

Re: MDE 7.1 encrypting non partition space

Drive Encryption will only encrypt lettered partitions. Space that is not partitioned or space that is partitioned but is not assigned a drive letter will not be encrypted. OPAL encryption is the exception as the entire disk is encrypted via hardware.
