Contratulations! Select Finish and PGP will now encrypt the hard drive. This will take several hours, depending on the size and speed of the hard drive and the laptops processor. During encryption, the laptop can be used as normal, although it may run slightly slower than normal due to the encryption running in the background. The laptop can also be shut down, put into sleep mode or rebooted, and the encryption will continue where it left off when the laptop is resumed. As a safety precaution, encryption will not occur when the laptop is on battery power. This means the laptop must be plugged into the charger to complete the encryption process.
