Decrypting hard drives in Kaspersky Security Center 10

After applying the policy, the decryption of hard drives on client devices will begin. To learn how to check the status of the hard drive decryption process, see the instructions in this article.

If the user shuts down or restarts the computer during the decryption of hard drives encrypted using Kaspersky Disk Encryption, the Authentication agent loads before the next system boot. Kaspersky Endpoint Security will resume hard drive decryption once you have authenticated in the agent and the operating system has started up.

If the computer goes into hibernation mode during the decryption of hard drives encrypted using Kaspersky Disk Encryption, the Authentication agent loads when the computer exits from it. Kaspersky Endpoint Security will resume hard drive decryption after you complete authentication in the agent and the operating system has started up. After decrypting the hard drives, hibernation mode is only available after the first operating system reboot.

If the operating system enters the sleep mode while the hard drives are being decrypted, then once the operating system exits sleep mode, Kaspersky Endpoint Security resumes decrypting the hard drives without loading the Authentication Agent.
