Will there be any solution to open my old PGPDisks?

I'm wondering if there's any way I can decrypt and mount my old PGPDisk files (not the drive encryption stuff, but the thing that made encrypted disk images). Symantec seems to have abandoned support for OS X. At the very least, it's incredibly hard to find updates, and I can't even find a downloader for the older versions that I own.

So, I'm hoping that GPGTools might provide an option. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Hey rmann,

    I'm not completely sure, what Symantecs stance on this is. Maybe their Endpoint Encryption software has support for PGP disk files?

    Since those are a proprietary format, support on our side is highly unlikely.

    It looks though as if the latest release is indeed 10.10 compatible: https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH174563.html

    If you find out more details, please do let us know, since this question keeps being asked occasionally.
