    How to initialize a McAfee Encrypted USB Disk


      Hi All,


      We used to have an ePO server and a lot of Encrypted USB drives.

      The ePO server is not in use anymore.

      On a lot of computers there is still the "McAfee Encrypted USB Client" installed.

      When plugging in the Encrypted USB disk it starts the initialization (managed) but this should not happen as it has to be initialized Standalone.

      The problem is, these drives are now sort of locked. We receive an error "Invalid Device State" and we cannot initialize them again.

      The led colors are: orange and red


      They cannot be initialized anymore on any other computer. Not even on a computer where the McAfee Encrypted USB Client is not installed.


      Any chance to make it possible for us to use the drives again?


      Thank you
