Acronis and Microsoft eDrive
I'm thinking about encrypting my laptop. I want to use Microsoft eDive since it supports hardware encryption. I'm aware how-to install the system and I know which prerequisites are necessary.
But I'm not sure how to backup and restore such a system.
With eDrive active the OS needs to present an Authentication Key (AK) to get access to the drive.
Is Acronis able to do that?
To install a new OS the drive must be
•The drive must be in an uninitialized state.
•The drive must be in a security inactive state.
+ some other (UEFI, CSM disabled,…)
With the installation of the OS changes the drive state and takes over the key management.
Afterwards bitlocker can be activated.
Is it possible to backup and restore such a secure drive with Acronis?
Which steps are necessary to backup (i.e volume or drive backup) and restore (boot with rescue media or restore data within a running OS) such a drive.
