PgP whole disk encryption

Created: 17 Sep 2013 | 2 comments

I have encrypted a external hard drive. When I plug it in to my machine and enter the passphrase, everything works fine. If I go to another machine that has pgp installed and my key imported, it does not work. Am I doing something wrong? We are using PGP Desktop 10.1.0.

Thank you

It would help if you state what happens when you try to access the disk on another machine.  If you receive an error message, please quote it here.

If the disk is encrypted to your public key, the export/import to the other machine must include the private key.  The private key is not included in the export unless you make the necessary selection before exporting it.  If you did include the private key in the export/import, you may just need to right click on it in All Keys and set Trust to Implicit.
