Migrating from XP (encrypted with SEE) to Win7 without decrypting the disk ?

Created: 03 Sep 2012 | 1 comment

 

Is there a procedure to migrate from XP machine with its disk encrypted with SEE, to Windows 7 without the need to decrypt the disk ?

For example, McAfee Endpoint Encryption offers this cool method to do just this (see below), and i was wondering if there's a similar procedure for SEE ?

That does seem like a cool method!

Unfortunately, Symantec offer no similar option for OS upgrades on an SEE-FD Encrypted disk (AFAIK).  Usually, the reason for doing an upgrade is to maintain user files and the like, in which case you may want to look into using the SEE Access CD to gain access to the encrypted disk(s), copying required data out, before then doing a full re-image (with Win7) and installing/encrypting again.
