    @hvargas - I don't know the answer to your question, but I'm curious why you wouldn't just use FileVault to encrypt an entire Mac hard drive.

    Edit: I'm going to move this to the Knox section of the forum, where your question will get the proper attention it deserves.

  • @hawkmoth - Yes, I wanted to see if Knox can do that, then go to my next question which would be if I attached a external drive would it auto prompt me to encrypt it?

    No, Knox is not meant for encrypting your whole hard drive. We recommend FileVault for that. It can be used to encrypt an entire external hard drive (though you won't be prompted to do so automatically), although it does have trouble doing so in El Capitan at this time.
