    We have 2 western digital hard drives that need to be archived and the data backed up to protected storage.  Can Commvault protect this data?  The hard drives are encrypted with bitlocker.

    Hi Eomall

    As bitlocker is configured on the HDD, backup might not work as it requires a decryption key to be in place to allow read. 

    Is there any opportunity to disbale bitlocker and choose encryption when backing up to Commvault?
