Ask some questions about disk encryption


Post by 744700595 » 31 Mar 2018 03:24

I've been testing disk encryption recently. Now there are some problems

1, it is not possible to turn encrypted disk back to unencrypted state.
2,Disk encryption -- the backup function inside the tool is to download all the data in the encrypted disk. Then the recovery function is to restore the backup data?
I hope someone who is familiar with the encryption points me out. Thanks
