1. PRE­CONDITIONS
The procedure outlined in this document explains how to manually clean SecureDoc
drivers from a system in cases of corrupted installation or uninstallation.
Only proceed with the steps within this guide if and only if ALL the following
conditions apply:
1. Drive must not be partially encrypted
2. SecureDoc cannot be uninstalled from Add/Remove Programs
3. SecureDoc cannot be uninstalled through MSI Command Line Uninstall Procedure
4. BootLogon must not be installed on drive

Disclaimer: Failing to abide to Pre-Conditions can lead to unbootable OS and potential data
loss.

2. CHECKING FOR PRE­CONDITIONS 
2.1 Partial Encryption
Use SDRecovery 3.0 and above to check for drive status. If drive status says
encrypting, do not proceed with the procedure outlined in this document.
Contact WinMagic Technical Support or the Partner within your region.

2.2 SecureDoc cannot be cleanly uninstalled
The clean uninstall procedure is to first decrypt the drive, uninstall BootLogon
and Uninstall SecureDoc from Add/Remove Program.
Alternatively, if drive is decrypted and BootLogon uninstalled, SecureDoc can
be uninstalled through the command line. First check the registry for SecureDoc
uninstall switch. It is different depending on the SecureDoc version.
 Open CMD as administrator and run the switch.
2.3 Check for BootLogon Status
If the value of the BootLogon = 1, do not proceed with this procedure. Contact
WinMagic Technical Support or the Partner within your region.

SDRecovery application is also an indicator as to whether BootLogon is installed.

SDService.
