    Curve Media Card Encryption

    Advertisement



    okay in a nutshell I have an SD card installed in my 8330 and had media card encryption off. Now I have 1,000's of pictures and files saved on my card and I now want to have media card encryption enabled. I enabled the encryption however it doesnt encrypt files that are already on the card, only new or modified files get encrypted. I have too many files on the card to sit and edit every single one to get it to encrypt.

    Does anyone know of way to have the blackberry encrypt all the files on a mass scale? or some kind of work around here. it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    You could copy all of them off the SD card and back on using Windows Explorer using Mass Storage Mode. I don't think that would take to long and they should encrypt when copied back on to the card.

    What exactly does the encrypting do?

    I'm not exactly sure but I think if you encrypt the media card it prevents it from being read if it is removed from the Blackberry and inserted in a card reader on a computer or put in another device. That's my best guess.

    no that doesnt work. there has to be an easier way to mass encrypt all these files on the media card

    Sorry, I thought maybe the files would be seen as new files when copied back to the device.
