How do I encrypt a secondary drive on a windows 7 32 OS?

We have a client that wants to encrypt his secondary hard drive. He would like to know if this is possible to do. I tried doing a test by adding a folder on his secondary drive, and naming it "test" Then tried to encrypt it, but could not because I got a message "invalid recovery certificate"

This user is part of domain. Can anyone help me and with how I can go about setting this up, if it is possible? Thanks

I'm not too familiar with this but from what i gather on the web, you have to renew the certificate(s).

Q: When I was encrypting a file, I got this message: "Recovery policy configured for this system contains invalid recovery certificate."

A: This means that one or more of the recovery agent certificates on the computer are expired. To encrypt the file, you have to renew the certificate. If your computer is on a domain, contact the system administrator.

Have a look @ the link below on how to renew the certs. Hope it helps.
Request or renew a certificate
