ESET Full Disk Encryption Recovery Passwords


Recommended Posts

Hi I currently have a laptop encrypted with Full Disk Encryption pushed out by the ESET Protect Cloud portal but when I try to use a recovery password there is currently 3 passwords and workstation ID but there is only one laptop. 

Is there anyway to remove the two that doesn't go with this laptop?

As far as I know, it is not possible to remove recovery passwords from the ESET Protect console.

I suspect the computer in question has been decrypted and re-encrypted several times. Each time you encrypt a computer (even if it's the same computer) a Workstation ID is generated. This is likely why you're seeing three recovery passwords, but each have different Workstation ID's.

When reseting a User's password in this manner, always match the index number and the Workstation ID with what the User see's on their computer in the recovery screen.

Kind regards,
