    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:
    sudo fdesetup changerecovery -personal

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

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