This article provides information on how to configure SafeGuard RemovableMedia (SGRM) so that SGPortable can be copied to every device without encrypting it.

Within SafeGuard RemovableMedia, the tool SGPortable is available in order to decrypt encrypted files on machines that have no other SafeGuard products installed.

As per default, SGPortable is only copied to a device where a file is encrypted.

Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)

Operating systems

What To Do

It is possible to configure SafeGuard RemovableMedia to copy the portable tool despite of any encryption action.

In order to do so, please change the below mentioned registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Utimaco\SafeGuard RemovableMedia

Set the value 'CopyPortable' to '3'

Once done, SGPortable will be copied to every USB device that is attached to that machine. There is no option to differentiate between certain devices.
