Recovery Console

The Full Disk Encryption Recovery Console allows Administrators, Authenticators, and permitted Users to do the following:

  • Recover Full Disk Encryption devices in the event of primary operating system failure

  • Troubleshoot network connectivity issues

  • Decrypt disks to retrieve inaccessible data

  • Manage policies when not connected with PolicyServer


If the disk is encrypted, do not use Windows or third-party repair utilities to recover data. Use the Recovery Console and decrypt the disk first. Otherwise, data may be lost, corrupted, or become inaccessible.

All policy changes are overwritten when the Full Disk Encryption agent synchronizes policies with PolicyServer.
