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

Posted:

**03 May 2019 22:47**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.
