Default ProTools HD with File Encryption

With all of the hacking that is going on, I was thinking about encrypting my hard drives. Will ProTools be able to play material from an encrypted drive?

Thanks in Advance,

Can't say for sure, but I wouldn't think so. ProTools can't deal with FileVault of a home folder, which might be similar. If the encryption was done on a hardware level in the drive case itself, like some of the secure Rokstor cases, maybe it would work.

But if you build some encrypted images, probably not.

I did this with truecrypt. Works well with a full encrypted drive and it's unbreakable but you need to know how to set things up to reduce drive performance loss.

Maybe you must just choose a good password and buy a proper firewall if you think intruders could come from the external wan.
