Make WHS backups compatible with PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently, WHS backups cannot complete if the disk is protected with PGP Whole Disk Encryption.  It'd be great if an update to WHS would fix this issue.

  • I could foresee this being quite difficult to do: WHS works on the sector level, so if a particular file is in more than one place, then only one copy, (plus a pointer,) is stored. To work with WDE, would require WHS being able to decrypt that disk on the fly and compare every sector, prior to encrypting it again. A lot of the current servers just wouldn't have the horsepower to manage it.
