Encryption in general have never been all that fast...
Window7 Ultimate bitlocker only does whole drives. The whole drive is being encrypted. It has been going for 4 hours now and is 20% finished, at this rate it will be done at noon tomorrow.
I am afraid to stop it until it finishes, I might loose the data on the drive.
