You want to upgrade the current operating system and Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE) is installed.
Systems that have SEE - Full disk or Removable Storage installed cannot have the operating system upgraded. Permanent data loss will occur.
All drives protected by SEE - FD need to be decrypted and then SEE software uninstalled completely before attempting any OS upgrade.
Drives protected by Removable Storage do not need to be unencrypted, however, SEE - RS and Framework still need to be uninstalled.
SEE - Full Disk or Removable Storage, any version.
