Default encrypting micro SD card on 9900

Please Login to Remove!

I am a fan of the 9900, but one thing I have a real big issue on is the lack of encryption on the micro SD card. I store stuff on this micro SD card in case the blackberry dies. Have the encryption and password enabled on the device, and the check mark to apply this to the media card.

When I power off the device I am able to pull that micro SD card out and everything pulls up on my laptop when using an SD adapter.

Why isn't the microSD card encrypted when the device is de-powered?
