stalled out decrypting at 5%
I decided to decrypt my drive over the weekend so that I could replace it with a larger capacity drive today. Had this message from pgpwde.exe --status
Operation start decrypt disk failed: Error code -11984: item not found.
I couldn't issue resume command or stop. I would continue getting the same error code.
I remembered that originally I had a secondary drive in the computer before encrypting with PGPWDE that I removed about three weeks ago. I put back that original 128 GB SSD that was in the computer when I originally encrypted, after that I could issue a resume and proceed with the last 5% - even though that disk was never encrypted.
That is messed up right?? What if that disk was dead... what would I do?
So my question is, how do I prevent this in the future? What data did that secondary drive have on it that PGPWDE needed? Again, this secondary drive was never encrypted originally.
Please help explain this and how to prevent it, Thanks
