    I guess only physical drive and not connected drives... but unless other users knows better you should check directly with the official ZA technical support at the link in my signature.

    If you get a response please post it back here, it may help other users with your same question.

    Cheers,

    i guess the answer is not, however support person was not very knowledgeable i think....

    here is chat:
    Jeremy S.: Thank you for contacting ZoneAlarm Technical Support. How may I help you today?
    alexp: hello
    alexp: just checking if i have an iscsi drive will encryption work on it too? or only physical drives installed?
    Jeremy S.: Hello Alexp, I understand that you would like to know if the encryption in ZoneAlarm will encrypt an external drive.
    alexp: not an external drive, i know ift will not, right?
    alexp: i'm talking about iscsi
    Jeremy S.: The encryption only works on internal drives, so it will not work on any external drives.
    alexp: but i see isci as an internal drive and can manage it as one
    alexp: can format it/ make partitio etc...
    Jeremy S.: But it is an external one, correct?
    alexp: yes and no
    Jeremy S.: The encryption will not work on this drive Alexp.
    alexp: do u know what is iscsi?
    Jeremy S.: It is a drive that connects to a network so you can manage it via a LAN or WAN.
    alexp: yes and your answer is that datalock will not work, right?
    Jeremy S.: correct
    alexp: ok, thanks!

    on a separate note, can anybody share statistics how long taking to encrypt (first time) 100GB - this is on SSD

    You answered you own Question in your Previous Reply..

    "Jeremy S.: It is a drive that connects to a network so you can manage it via a LAN or WAN.
    alexp: yes and your answer is that datalock will not work, right?
    Jeremy S.: correct
    alexp: ok, thanks! "

    Install Datalock on the (iscsi) drive at your own Risk,
    So if the drive crashes or you lose DATA, you have been warned..

    Good Luck..

    It can take a long time to encrypt... so let it go.
    For the drive issue... you will get anyway, during install, which drive will be encrypted.
    So you will know if it does or not. Support actually was quite clear... = NO . How your system see the drive is irrelevant for the case.

    Thanks,

    it might be me, but i dont think as a support he was clear
    clear answer would be:
    "sorry datalock does not support iscsi drives"...

    i dont think iscsi falling under external storage definition, but doesn't matter this is not storage forum

    i'll let you know guys if it works

    yes also days... I can't answer your question it is really down to the specific system Datalock is installed....

    For an idea see discussion here:
    Encryption is progressing very slowly: 18% after two days

    There is no set time.

    Every PC is different thus encryption time are vastly different.

    You can use the PC as normal while it encrypts.

    It will not affect your use of the PC. You cant even tell its encrypting.

    It could take hours or take many days just depends on so many variables its impossible to tell you how long it will take.

    main thing it will not interfere with your day to day work.

    Also we DO NOT support iscsi for encryption of data.
