What new options are available in the SEE Recover 8.2.0b Utility and what are they used for? (Symantec Endpoint Encryption Full Disk Edition)
Last Updated March 22, 2012
The most recent version of the SEE Recover Utility v. 8.2.0b contains a few new options in addition to those formerly available. All options are described below :
1) recover /A - attempts a repair of the SEE volume files
2) recover /D - decrypts the drive using a Client Administrator credential
3) recover /B - decrypts the drive using a .dat file taken from the SEE Management Server
4) recover /O - this command restores the drive to the OEM state, keeping user data intact
5) recover /S - this command restores the drive to the OEM state after performing a secure erase of user data
6) recover /F - Safe Mode Reboot
Note that options 4&5 only apply to managed OPAL compliant drives. These commands will have no effect on non-OPAL drives. The last option simply restarts the machine, displaying the option to press F8 for Safe Mode. This is used in situations where USB attached devices are non-responsive or other issues exist preventing us from entering Safe Mode normally.
