this thread is for Managed EEM..
And in which thread is it currently???
Is it even recommended to encrypt these portable hard drives?
>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.
Thank you for your reply
The status was "encrypting" when drive was unplugged
I'm guessing this was a eSATA drive, as EEPC6 won't encrypt anything which is truly "removable" ?
Yes, Agreed Simon,
but may be he has configured policy to encrypt removable ...
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.
anyone else ?
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.
