What is a DKE file?

Disk key generated by DriveLock Full Disk Encryption (FDE), a program used to encrypt and password protect hard drives; contains a decryption key that is used to decrypt the contents of a hard drive after they have been encrypted with DriveLock.

More Information

DriveLock generates disk key file as part of a recovery Zip package when it encrypts a hard drive. To decrypt a hard drive, users must supply the generated DKE file as well as the DKE file password that they specified when the hard drive was encrypted.

NOTE: Once a hard drive has been decrypted in the recovery process, the DKE file becomes obsolete and should be deleted.
