    Is it possible to use PowerShell to determine if a drive is FDE capable? We have some drives that are OPAL-compliant self-encrypting drives but not all of them and I'm trying to determine which is which with PowerShell.

    You can look at Win32_PhysicalDisk or DiskDrive, but I'm skeptical. That's a relatively new feature and I don't think the class was ever designed to surface it. You'd need to see if the drive manufacturer has a WMI provider or other means of surfacing that info to Windows.

      Thank you, Don. That's what I was thinking, but wanted to get other's thoughts.
