    Hi all

    I've just started encrypting my 2 TB, and i've run into a problem..

    Unlike encrypting na internal drive where FileVault gives u some sort of progress, there is nothing to show what its doing..

    However, DU, and Get Info on the volume says its "encrypted", but there is still something happening...

    So, how long should i wait. ?

    Apart from this, there is nothing else to go by... The LED is still flashing so something is being done, This is after only 10 minutes, which also doesn't make sense on a 2TB drive.

    I don't want to pull the plug, but i also have backups.. and may do this only as a last resort..

    Any suggestions ? Getting a call back tomorrow from Apple on this, but just wondering what u guys reckon.

    Seems i can do a diskutil cs list from Terminal, and it shows conversation and percentage...

    I guess this gives me an only hope. :apple:
