EEE on Win 11 - Disk encrytion pretest failed - not enough space - error 0x00000070


Recommended Posts


I have a brand new HP zBook and want to encrypt the entire disk. Win11 Pro with all updates and EEE v5.1.1.14 are installed. If I want to encrypt the disk the precheck failed witih the message:

SafeStart can not be enabled

Not enough space on the disk.

Error 0x00000070 by the "Windows System Error".


So what is wrong? Can you help me?


Disk layout

1 TB SSD (100 MB system partition, 500 GB Windows 11 partiton, 453 GB data partition, 619 MB recovery partition)
