I enabled FileVault on my Mac running High Sierra in the Security and Privacy System Preferences tab. Now my computer is extremely slow, I can't even use it.
FileVault is still in the process of encrypting my files (and will be for a very long time) and I would like to just halt the process and disable FileVault ASAP. I have tried
sudo fdesetup disable
on the Terminal many times, receiving just the following message:
FileVault was not disabled (-69573)
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong because everytime someone tells me to do this online, they tell me that the message I should get should read "FileVault disabled".
I am open to any suggestions on how to stop the FileVault encryption process and keep FileVault off.
