Upgrading File Encryption

Use FileEncryptionIns.exe to upgrade the agent from a previous version.


FileEncryptionIns.exe overrides the Allow User to Uninstall policy and upgrades whether the policy is set to Yes or No.

  1. Run FileEncryptionIns.exe.

    Windows installer uninstalls the older File Encryption agent (FileArmor) and then installs File Encryption 6.0.

  2. Wait for the endpoint to restart.
  3. After Windows loads, log on and check the new File Encryption folder. Encrypted files and folders are maintained.
