Safeboot Encrypted Laptop - Problem


Gordo

Recommended Posts

FYI, Smart Defrag (1.10) appears to have stepped on some root encryption data on my Safeboot (now a McAfee product) encrypted laptop and upon reboot after a defrag, Safeboot reports a checksum error and won't boot. I am awaiting recovery by my Safeboot administrator.

Hi Gordo

Does your safeboot suggest that you exclude some file(s) from defragmentation?

The above encrypted with -Gordo :

Same issue here (version 1.11). Did they solved?

Issue seems to be with defragger..and may effect more than one defragger (Checkpoitn Pointsec, etc.).

 

From what I can see, I wouldn't recommend move function just defrag until you have confirmed compatibility between defragger and encryption...

 

The kicker, is that people reporting unrecoverable data loss.
