With the 1909 windows 10 update due next Tuesday(Wednesday) does anyone know if you have the drive Encrypted with Veracrypt, which normally requires me to decrypt before update, but now that MS have decided that the 09 updates each year will only be a minor update and will get delivered by the normal update routine can I leave the encryption on and let update run?

 

Would save a lot of time when you have many PC's





Nokia 7 Plus
Nexus 6P 32Gb
Nexus 6 Phone
Nexus 5 Phone
Nexus 7 2013 Tablet
Samsung TAB A 8"
Samsung TAB A 10"

 

& many Windows laptops, Desktops etc

You could test this yourself right now, by putting a machine into Windows Insider and see what happens

Obviously BitLocker is integrated, free, and just works.

The Veracrypt website says they support upgrades without decryption

The 09 update itself gets delivered in the same way as 03

Thanks for that. I understood that from 2019 the updates would change with a full update requiring a full windows install as the first update each year and a simple update not requiring a full install in the September update. Is that not correct?

Where on website did you find that the windows update can be installed on an encrypted drive. I cannot find it but it is not the most helpful site to search. In the past they warned against this and that there was a way you could upgrade an encrypted system drive but it involved a convoluted process. I found it easier to decrypt upgrade and re encrypt.  

 

Thanks

I just searched on Google, don't have the search criteria handy

 

But have you tried it recently?

 

they've probably automated that convoluted process (which I think was inserting an additional line into an INI file, to tell Windows how to do the upgrade with 3P encryption software)

 

Also think about the threat profile, of having your fleet un-encrypted during upgrades

/reflectdrivers is the cmd line switch you use for setup.exe
