Applies to Kaspersky KryptoStorage

An object (local disk or removable media) is safely protected only after the encryption process is completed. If you interrupt the encryption for some reason, some data remains unprotected. 

In order to resume the encryption, perform the following actions: 

  • Click Start in the left lower corner of the screen.
  • Click My computer from the menu that will open.
  • in the My Computer window select the required object which is partially encrypted. 
  • If the object is detached, attach it (you cannot attach or detach a system and/or boot disk). 
  • Right-click the selected object.
  • From the opened context menu select Kaspersky KryptoStorage - Continue volume encryption
  • In the Enter user password window enter the Password to access the protected object.
  • Click OK.

The encryption process resumes. The protected disk (removable device) remains attached and you can continue using it.
