I'm on OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4) on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012) and with a 750 GB HDD inside. I already have a working Windows 8 Partition with BootCamp set up. Now for my Macintosh HD Partition I wanted to enable FileVault 2.

After enabling FileVault 2, proceed through the steps from saving the key to apple, restarting, logging back in, the encryption process starts but doesn't move. It stucks pending and calculates the estimating time starting with 1 Day and then counting higher and higher. 345, 346, 367 Days etc.

The Console shows this error:

10.08.13 23:40:56,390 System Preferences[313]: *** -[DMManager conversionProgressForLogicalVolumeDisk:] returned an error; error: -69808 (-[SecurityFDEController _checkFDEEncryptionStatusTimer:])

The only tip I found online was this thread from Apple Support Community https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3251117

It says I should move this file /System/Library/UserEventPlugins/ServerTMShares.plugin out temporarily, though in my system I can't find a file named ServerTMShares.plugin?

What can I do? Thanks!
