Question: Backup stuck at encryption since past 14 hours
I am trying to transfer my data from an old macbook air to a new one. I started a backup using time machine to a seagate 1tb external hard drive but the backup seems to be stuck at "Encrypting..." since the past 14 hours. Not sure if anything is actually happening or the process is stuck!
Wish there was a progress bar or something to what is going on. I have to also admit that I am a novice to mac (been a windows user all my life of 53 years).
Any guidance/help would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks in advance.
MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)
