Configuring printer hard disk encryption

  1. From the home screen, touch Settings > Security > Disk Encryption > Start Encryption.

    Note:  Enabling disk encryption erases the contents of the hard disk. If necessary, back up important data from the printer before starting the encryption.

  2. Follow the instructions on the display.


    • Do not turn off the printer during the encryption process. Loss of data can occur.
    • Disk encryption can take from several minutes to more than an hour, making the printer unavailable for other tasks.
    • After encryption, the printer returns to the home screen.
