I think it is now suppose to be implied (silent) feature. Once you get authorized and authenticated, you should be able to see drive content in clear. Simon mentioned something about a "trick" to decrypt any data to get it "activated".
Yes. Simon did say to use the Crypt Sectors feature and decrypt a small amount of data. That did the trick. Just a little extra work but at least there is a way to perform Mount Drive. I am spoiled....I want just a button to click.
I would prefer it to work without any buttons (I guess that was the intention), but DOCUMENTED!
Can you provide the details of what you did to mount the drive? I would like a button as well.
Sure, but do this at your own risk. Flushing the key into the driver was mentioned by Simon on disscusion http://community.mcafee.com/thread/24810.
1. Authenticate and authorize at EETech.
2. Click on Disk Information and look at the Disk Crypt List.
3. Pick a small sector range from this list.
4. Click Crypt Sectors and input a small sector range. For example Start Sector - 1000 and Number of Sectors - 1002
5. Click Decrypt.
6. After the sector decryption you will see the drive decrypted in the A43 utility.
1002 sectors is not "that" small. I hope not too many credit card numbers can fit there.
This approach causes drive to be only partially encrypted . "Tricky" indeed, but useful.
actually, it does not write to the drive at all - you're only working in the workspace remember - to actually touch the drive you'd have to go through the extra step of writing the workspace back somewhere.
There was nothing about workspace in instructions above.
So after you decrypt these sectors, you can get to the drive and get to the files, which I will test and if it works, thats a good deal. Now, can you still boot the computer or is it basically unbootable after you do this "trick".
We really need a good troubleshooting manual with tips like this and resolutions to general issues that come up. Although I still think we need the capability to easily mount the drive after you are authenticated and authorized. I mean, how much more do you need? Give me a mount button or just let me see it in explorer.
