How are colleges handling full disk backups for encrypted computers?
We use Altiris for our desktop management system and Bitlocker for the encryption. Currently, if we need a full disk backup we have to unencrypt the computer (4-6 hrs), perform the full disk backup (2-4 hrs), and re-encrypt the computer (4-6 hrs, but the user can use the computer while it is encrypting). This is pretty tedious and time consuming- are there any tools that make this process easier?
