I am deploying EEPC 6.0.1 on Windows 7 using epo 4.5 for deployment. I have setup a testing station and ran into a problem where a removable hard drive was removed during encryption status. When I reattach the portable hard drive I receive a message from Windows that the disc needs to be formatted. Is it even recommended to encrypt these portable hard drives? What is the recovery procedure for this hard drive?

>Its depends on you, Encrypted HDDs will not be accesible except where it is encrypted.
What is the recovery procedure for this hard drive?
>1. What was the encrypted status when you removed the hdd ?
2. You can try Wintech to get data back.
I don't think EEPC6 has the option to encrypt removable drives? Please correct me if I'm wrong though - I'm more of an EEPC5 guy.
The policy options are:
Encrypt: All disks
All disks except boot disks
The status on the encryption agent showed drive c: encrypted, drive d: encrypted (internal extra drive), and drive f: encrypting (portable sata drive). I left the computer over 3 days and it did finish with the encryption on drive f: which is when I removed the drive. After reconnecting the drive I get the message that I need to format the drive.
