Hi Experts,

I would like to know whether the Symantec encryption software can encrypt only a certain part of a HDD, for example. we don't want to encrypt the system drive
We find the Symantec Encryption software is slowing down the laptop performance.
Management now only wants the files and folders under the document settings and the temp files to be encrypted.Is this possible?
Can you refer me to a white paper or any article advising whether this can/cannot be done.
Can you please advise if this is possible  and with out rebuilding  a laptop and partition the drive into two disk?
