How to operate the Cipher Z-DriveEnclosure:

Note: Hot swapping refers to the ability to plug and unplug the component without rebooting.

1.Insert the AES 256-bitcipher key into the cipher keyhole on the CipherZ-DriveEnclosure.

2.Power on the device.

3.Observe that the green Power LED should light up. If it does not, re-insertthe cipher key andre-powerthe device or reset the CipherZ-DriveEnclosure.

4.For new drive, go to the operating system’s management utility to partition, format and mount the encrypted drive.

Note: You may remove the cipher key from the CipherZ-DriveEnclosure once it is powered on. All the files being transferred into the drive are still encrypted even if the cipher key is removed. Always keep a spare master key in a safe place.

Reset switch

Under certain applications, the RESET button enables the connecting and disconnecting of the Cipher Z-DriveEnclosure without restarting the system. Following are examples of such applications:

a.When the cipher key is removed from the Z-DriveEnclosure, pressing the reset switch will clear the key code and remove the drive icon. This is good for security when theZ-DriveEnclosure is left unattended.

b.Likewise when the Z-DriveEnclosure is connected and powered on with a cipher key, pressing the RESET button will initialize the drive. Note that if the hard drive is not encrypted or if the cipher key does not match with what is on the encrypted hard drive, it will show up as an unallocated drive under the drive management screen and no drive icon will show up on the My Computer folder. It’s very important to make sure that the correct cipher key is used on the hard drive.Proceeding to initialize the hard drive will erase all the data beyond any possibility of recovery.

Green Power LED

In order for the green power LED of the CipherChain mounted on the Cipher Z-DriveEnclosure to turn on, the cipher key must be inserted prior to powering or resetting the CipherZ-DriveEnclosure. If the power LED does not light up, the computer will not detect the hard drive connected to the CipherZ-DriveEnclosure.

Yellow Power LED

Lights up when there is drive activity.
