Location-based File Encryption and SafeGuard Data Exchange

SafeGuard Data Exchange is used to encrypt data stored on removable media connected to a computer and to exchange this data with other users. For SafeGuard Data Exchange file-based encryption is used.

If both SafeGuard Data Exchange and location-based File Encryption are installed on an endpoint, it may occur that a SafeGuard Data Exchange encryption policy is defined for a drive on the computer and location-based File Encryption policies are defined for folders on the same drive. If this is the case, the SafeGuard Data Exchange encryption policy overrules the File Encryption policies. New files are encrypted according to the SafeGuard Date Exchange encryption policy.
