While the chances are extremely low that a boot.efi file could become corrupt on a boot disk or partition protected by PGP Whole Disk Encryption, it is possible. If this occurs, it could prevent your system from booting. Prepare for this unlikely event by creating a recovery CD before you encrypt a boot disk or partition using PGP Whole Disk Encryption on a Macintosh Snow Leopard system.

This recovery disk is only available for usage on Macintosh OSX 10.5.8 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) systems with PGP Desktop 10. Download the image for disks encrypted with PGP Desktop 10 ONLY.
