    So how many times does it pass over the system when using encryption? It gets to 100% and then starts over back at 0%, has a couple times in a row now. And I can't seem to stop it at all, when I stop it I have to sit through it doing the same thing only decrypting instead of encrypting. Anybody have any idea?

    and its respect to what? disk encryption? if its disk encryption then its an awesome long process. first the current data or info is stored as a metadata and then the whole disk is written with /dev/urandom which is a PITA process and takes huge time. My 16 GB pendrive took 6 hours. and then it encrypts the drive and the metadata is restored. this is generic process.
    so did i understand your question properly?
    thanks!

    It took about 12 hours, went to 100% several times. I was talking about the native encryption process through settings. I think you did understand it quackquack, thanks for the breakdown.
