      Some q.

       

      1)  If I back up my old hdd and reimage windows the new hash code generated from EEM will be the same or recive  the "new" ? Reinstaled windows will have the same MBR ? (or it depend on time and is generated random)

      2) I was reinstalled my pc becouse I must work on it (on anothe hdd). I was installed MEE Client and he connect to DB,

      Can you tell to me there is rewrite (lost) the old configuration of first encrypted hdd (old)

      I wasnt installed encryption on this new hdd.
      Is there stored old configuration, is possible generate sdb file?

      3) Its possible me self recive sdb file from db server (EEM)?

      SbAdmCl.exe -command:????

      4) I read somewhere that when McAfee Enpoint Encryption Client detect that the MBR is corrupted then he repair it automaticly - recive sdb file from db and repar it. I think this work only on working system  hypoticaly is there any chance to emulate this situation?

       

      Thank
