Remote Wipe Windows 10 PC's with Intune Client installed
Currently if you install the Intune Client on a Windows 10 PC (other OS's as well perhaps, I haven't checked), you lose the ability to "Remote Wipe". The only option is to Retire the device.
Intune Client should give full management to include Remote Wipe. What happens if one of my mobile users loses their device? I have no way of remotely wiping this. I know this can be achieved if they are "enrolled" rather than client, but why not same features?
On October 16, 2019, we announced that support for the Intune PC software client (PC agent) will end on October 15, 2020, along with the Silverlight-based Intune Classic console. You should plan to move to use the MDM channel to manage your Windows PCs as soon as possible. Learn more: https://aka.ms/intune_silverlight_console
Do you guys really rely on "Remote Wipe" nowadays???
To prevent data leakage, you should better focus on full disk encryption, and accept the fact that a lost device will never ever be wiped : as the disk is unreadable for anyone other than the owner, the device is already as being "wiped" the moment it gets lost.

This situation with client vs mdm managed device is ugly anyway, should be merged feature wise.
