I’ve just been using   Time Machine to backup my Macbook to an external hard drive. I set it to encrypt the drive as well which I think it did to begin with. Then it started to back up the drive (112GB worth) and I left it to run. I kept coming back to it every so often to revive the screen out of sleep mode. But it was making good progress. Now TM is saying it’s encrypting but its progress bar for that has been near the beginning for the last ten minutes. Has it  frozen or does it just take a very long time to encypt? The white light on the drive is still flashing away.
