It's a good point, because the client starts the connection, the renegotiation is only between the client and the MITM, not with the server. You could see the user-agent strings for the SSLv3 connections, but now all SSLv3 connections should be considered suspicious. I'm updating the answer.

The data may not exist as plain text. Bulk Data Encryption on many models of drives means that the data is already encrypted even if the encryption key is not. Using the hardware-based FDE (ATA Secure Erase command) will regenerate the key, rendering the data unreadable. This is why you can put an HDD password on such a disk and not have to wait all day for it to encrypt.
