How long will it take to encrypt a 1TB hard disk?

During the installation I wanted to encrypt the most important partition and selected it accordingly. Now I have been waiting for 2 hours for this partition to be encrypted.
How long should it take to encrypt an 800 GB SSD?
With top I get the message that openssl apparently does the calculation with one core.

Whats was the 800gb partition, if it was your home partition might have been easier to have a smaller home and then have a couple of data partitions that you can mount and encrypt as required.
