I have a couple of questions about how encryption works on the Samsung T7 SSD. I've tried unsuccessfully to find answers in the existing documentation and by contacting Samsung Memory Support. Was hoping there might be somebody familiar with Samsung encrypted SSDs who could answer my queries.
I'll start by posting the first question I had:
If secure mode is not enabled, does this mean that the drive is not encrypted, or just that the drive's encryption key is not password-locked and so encryption/decryption is automatic (i.e., happens without the need to unlock the encryption key with a password)?
I have several related questions. Any help would be very much appreciated
