I encrypted my Time Machine backup (A Western Digital 2tb external drive) then realised that Airport wont mount the backup over wifi, so am currently decrypting the drive (via Disk Utility).
I found the command:
diskutil cs list
which shows me the progress of the operation (it took a while to register at the under the the menu-bar icon).
Here's a snippet from the output:
Sequence: 13 Encryption Status: Unlocked Encryption Type: None Encryption Context: Present Conversion Status: Converting Has Encrypted Extents: Yes Conversion Direction: backward
Encrypting the backup took about 24 hours, and the time machine icon currently shows 'Decryptig Backup Disk (28%)'.
My question is: can I eject the drive without losing the backup? Will the decryption continue when I mount the drive again?
