vsan encryption new data

 

I have read in some docs when you enable vSAN encryption only new data is encrypted.  I thought it performs a rolling reformat and then moves the data back, so all data would be encrypted..

@Gaprofitt17, Perhaps you are confusing this with deduplication? Because that is true for deduplication, but not true for encryption.
