I activated File Vault to encrypt my HOME folder last night at about 2:00 A.M. I'm posting here on my trusty 'ol G3 This morning it was still running for several hours finishing the deletion of the previous home folder. Now it's been showing time remaining "About 5 seconds" for the last hour and a half and it's just past 4 P.M. I have about 45 GB used on the 250 GB HD. I'm waiting for this to finish so I can get rolling on the reformat of my 160. Ugh!
