    Encrypted Harddrives and OneDrive


    I currently have a desktop successfully syncing with a laptop via Onedrive.

    Can I encrypt the desktop's and laptop's hard-drives and still sync successfully to OneDrive?

    Thanks for your help!

    :)

  2. Bitlocker eDrive Setup with 2nd Partition

    Hello,

    I have successfully encrypted my C: drive with Bitlocker. I used the new Hardware Encryption (eDrive) method and it works without a problem.

    But I still think that I've encountered a "bug" in this setup. My SSD (Samsung 850 Pro) is split into two partitions. While Windows 10 says that my primary partition is successfully encrypted, it shows my second Partition (DEncrypted Harddrives and OneDrive :) as unencrypted.

    I personally think that this is wrong or misleading. As far as I understand the eDrive functionality, it doesn't directly encrypt the partition. It only manage the encryption keys of the harddrive itself.

    But the harddrive itself can't differentiate between the partitions or data (Or am I wrong here?). So shouldn't partition D: be also shown as encrypted as partition C:, as the whole harddrive has been encrypted?

    Yes, but the files won't be encrypted on OneDrive.

    The OneDrive app just sees the files as you do.
