Windows 10 upgrade

This question is answered

Working on upgrading to Windows 10.  I understand that I need to unencrypt all of my files before doing the upgrade.  Simple question - procedures to unencrypt everything?

Only thing I found in the Help was something about applying a new template, but the closest template descriptions seemed to be Encryption Disabled and its description appears to apply only to new files.

  • Fredbell,

    Sadly this process is only available on 8.9.1 and newer. The link that Vijaya posted will take you to a more in-depth how-to regarding the update process. 

    This process does support Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 RTM to the latest Windows 10 packages (currently Threshold 2, aka build 1511)

  • Hi,

    no need to decrypt everything. Just go through the steps reported under the 8.9.1 technical advisories at page 62 using WSProbe: downloads.dell.com/.../dell-data-protection-encryption_user's guide7_en-us.pdf

    Let me know if this does not make sense?

    Thanks,
    Andrea

  • I’m on DDPE version 8.5.1.6929. Does the Enterprise version writeup you referenced also apply to my version?

  • Also, this will be an upgrade from Win 8.1 to 10.  The page 62 procedures appear to be for those already on Win 10, and doing the fall 2015 upgrade within Win 10.  Still applicable?
