This article provides instructions how to create a new Whole Disk Recovery Token when using PGP Desktop 10 for Windows.
In PGP Universal Server managed environments with the appropriate policy, Whole Disk Recovery Tokens (WDRTs) are created automatically when a disk, partition, or removable disk is whole disk encrypted. They are sent to the PGP Universal Server managing security for the disk or partition when they are created.
WDRTs can be used to access the disk or partition in case the passphrase or authentication token is lost. Once a WDRT is used, it cannot be used again. A new WDRT must be generated for the system. All new WDRTs are also automatically sent to the PGP Universal Server managing the disk when the new WDRT is created.
