Which Files cannot or must not be encrypted by SafeGuard LAN Crypt ?

You must not use SafeGuard LAN Crypt Client to encrypt system files, i.e.:

  • The Windows directory. If the operating system files are encrypted, the operating system will not start.
    Note: At the installation, SafeGuard LAN Crypt registers the Windows directory into the list of ignored paths.
  • Swap files (pagefile.sys)
  • Other system files in the root directory, e.g. boot.ini, autoexec.bat, config.sys etc.
    The administrator must ensure that these files and directories are not encrypted.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
