This Feature Request is to add support for drive encryption on machines with eMMC storage for Symantec Encryption Desktop. This includes, but is not limited too, the Lenovo Miix 2 or ThinkPad Tablet 2.

The following error message is received when encryption is attempted using SED, and trying to encrypt the drive:

"The encryption feature is not supported on the selected disk."


This tablet uses an internal drive that features E-MMC storage which is currently not supported.  


Symantec Corporation is committed to product quality and satisfied customers.  This Feature Request is currently being considered by Symantec Corporation to be addressed in a forthcoming version of the product.  

Technical Support filed a Feature Request to add this product feature. Note that an feature request is exactly that, a request. There is no committed date for this request from the Endpoint Encryption Product Management team, nor from the Endpoint Encryption Engineering team at this time.
Please be sure to refer back to this document periodically as any changes to the status of the request will be reflected here.
