PGP WDE for Win XP Win 7 Dual Boot - MBR and PGPWDE01 not Sync

Created: 18 Nov 2012 | 1 comment

I Installed Win XP on Disk 0 Partition 0 first, and then Win 7 on Disk 0 Partition 1, and Disk 0 Partition 2 for Data Storage. The computer is dual boot and managed by Win7 boot loader. The C:\ Drive is automatically assigned to partition 0 in Win XP and partition 1 in Win 7.

I installed PGPWDE on both OS, and encrypted whole disk 0 (all partitions) in Win XP. After encryption, once I switch the OS (from Win7 to WinXP or from WinXP to Win7) the PGP generated pgpsync file in partition 0 and said the PGPWDE01 moved, the MBR and PGPWDE01 do not point to the same sector, then PGP repair the error with err=0.

1) What's the reason for the MBR and PGPWDE01 not Sync?

2) Is my disk still safe and protected by PGPWDE?

3) Anyway to fix this?

Since you are using the Win7 bootloader, it seems like you may avoid this problem if you encrypted your disk from within Win7.
