Not encrypting second drive

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have a Lenovo W530 that has an OS drive (drive c:) that is a 128 GB SSD and a data drive (drive d:) that is a 500 GB platter drive. The current policy set is to encyrpt all drives however it is only the OS drive (drive c:) that is getting encrypted. Any ideas on why that is?

Thanks

Is the second drive GPT or MBR?  If it's GPT then we won't recognise it in versions lower than 7.0.  GPT support was added in 7.0.

Is the 2nd drive supported? IE is it MBR, Basic type etc? Perhaps include a screen shot of disk manager.

looks normal to me. Next is to check out your policy, and of course the EEPC log file to see if it's complaining about anything.
