Does any know of a solution that can image a disk that is encrypted?    We currently use Sophos as out encryption solution, and use Acronis for our imaging solution.

Everything I've read lately, as we do image all systems and Bitlock all laptops, suggests that you must decrypt any hard drive *before* imaging.
Not sure what you want is possible.

Ya - I pretty much see the same thing around, or some companies say it may work, but do not guarantee it.

It sucks to be sure.. but depending on how many IT heads you've got to throw at managing desktops I think the safest bet is to take the time to decrypt then image.

Ya - what we do now when we build laptops, we image them before putting Sophons and VPN on them to ensure we have the lateset and greatest image, and if anything should happen to their laptop, we can bring it back to life to that point, encrypt, instsall VPN, and call it a day..
