    My 950 has been rebooting out of the blue recently and I thought I would try to disable the device protection on it to see if that helps.

    There are two on/off switches. One for the device, one for the SD card. I can tick the option for the SD card but it goes back to on right away. The main option is dimmed and I can not change anything there.

    I am on the latest feature2 release. Any ideas?

    My idea would be that this is not a massively tested area in W10M. I know I tried it once and it didn't work.

    Any encryption enabling/disabling would not be an instant click to engage/disable due to the processing required to basically step through the entire SD data and encrypt/decrypt the data. I'd wager that it's the sort of option you can enable or disable on a blank SD card before using it but after that point, let's say disable did something - it might require several hours of decrypting the data to actually disable.

    I can say that SD cards do go bad though - perhaps just grab a new card and try that fresh?

    I noticed that unchecking the option (although it goes to ON right after), eventually disabled the encryption. So I have now been able to deactivate it totally - no change so ordered a new battery :)
