If I choose not to encrypt my USB drive on my staff PC what will happen?

  • If you choose not to encrypt your USB drive, it will only be accessible in Read-only mode.
  • This means you will be able to view files on the drive, but unable to save or edit any of the documents or files.
  • We strongly advise that you encrypt your USB drive. This can be done on your staff computer using BitLocker (How do I do that?)
