SD5SG2256G1052E Encryption (SanDisk in X1 Carbon)

I'm helping a friend with his laptop and I'm wondering if this particular drive is a self encrypting drive. The folks over at SanDisk said it isn't, but told me to double check with the manufacturer of the laptop? Any thoughts Smiley Happy

 

Thanks!

X1C Gen1 supports the only single SSD with Full Disk Encription capability - Intel SSDSCMMW240A3L, FRU 45N8423.

Or use another FDE capable disk in standard m.2 formfactor with some installation tricks.

Thank you! It's a SanDisk drive, so I'm guessing he will need to use software encryption like BitLocker, since it sounds like the drive doesn't support hardware FDE.

 

Thanks!
