Filevault 2 encryption on 10.13.2 17C205 taking a considerably longer time to complete

New Contributor III

Hi Guys,
I was wondering if anyone else has noticed a quadruple in encryption time on the latest Security updates for the 10.13.2?
Quite a few machines we give out don't finish encryption which means that Im even more concerned when they dont report back as being fully encrypted for days after giving out the a user - this can create worry.

Just wondering if anyone else has seen a major jump in encryption time.

Sounds about right.. there's an open radar with Apple about this at the moment.

Massive pain, most i've seen is 14 hours on a clean install.

Using multiple kind of MacBooks.
