WipeDrive can handle encrypted drives. However there might be a limitation. Locked drives will give issues in most cases. 

No problem: 

Software level encryption 

Possible issue:

Hardware encrypted drives & locked drives

Linux Drive Encryption: 

The default encryption used when setting up a Linux OS is no problem at all. The encryption is done on software level. 


BitLocker is no problem for WipeDrive. 

Locked drives:

If a drive is locked due to a hardware lock this will cause issues in most cases. 

The lock will be in the BIOS in most cases. This will mean you need a password to unlock the drive. 

If you have a drive that looks to be locked, please contact us as support@global-emea.com and send some hardware information in the email. We might give some advice.
