Hi, I have one problem how to find out my key from macOS Sierra FileVault (is not FileVault 2), (Although it is switched on), if not, somehow help me. I forgot to copy the key and paste or write on the paper, can you help me? :(

Turn off FileVault: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > FileVault > Unlock Lock at bottom left of Security & Privacy window > Enter Password > Turn Off FileVault

Turn on FileVault to set a new key.

You can generate a new recovery key without having to turn off FileVault by using this Terminal command:
Code:
sudo fdesetup changerecovery -personal

It will ask you for the password of a FileVault user.

[QUOTE = "960design, post: 24883634, member: 689630"] Isključite FileVault : Postavke sustava> Sigurnost i privatnost> FileVault> Otključaj zaključavanje u donjem lijevom kutu prozora Sigurnost i privatnost> Unesi lozinku> Isključi FileVault

Uključite FileVault za postavljanje novog ključa. [/ QUOTE]
U redu, thank you, It was resolved. ☺
