Backup copy of PGP - can I just copy the app?
I have my startup drive encrypted with PGP WDE and recently encrypted my external Time Machine backup drive as well. In the event of a system meltdown, I will need a copy of PGP in order to decrypt my backup drive. How will I get this copy?
Can I simply copy the PGP application file to an unencrypted drive, and then use that copy of the app to decrypt my external drive (encrypted with password only option)? Is this an effective way to back up the app? I printed out my license number, as well, in case I need it.
Or do I need to keep a copy of the installer app? Sadly I can no longer download an installer app after the Symantec transition; the Symantec license portal doesn't show my product even though I have a current license and maint. contract. I am worried I will be hosed if my system crashes. How will I get a current copy of PGP?
