Decrypting Media

Using the Ivanti Device and Application Control client, you can decrypt removable storage devices encrypted by Device Control.

Caution: Decrypting a medium is the same as formatting a medium and all data on the medium will be erased.

To decrypt a removable storage medium using the Windows Explorer:

  1. Select My Computer.
  2. Right-click the name of the device listed under Devices with Removable Storage, then click Decrypt Medium.
    The Ivanti Device and Application Control Decrypt Medium dialog opens.
  3. You may be prompted to enter a passphrase for a Passphrase User, depending upon the users added when the medium was encrypted.

  4. Click OK.
    The removable storage device is decrypted.
