PGP Whole Disk Encryption process hangs at 0% and does not continue. Even after clicking the Resume button in PGP Desktop, the encryption process does not resume.
Make sure that if you are using a laptop, that you have the laptop using A/C power and not on battery power.
Should this not resolve the issue then do the following for your operating system:
1.Click Start > Run and type cmd and click OK. This opens a Command Line window.
2. Navigate to the PGP Desktop folder in C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop
3. Run the following command: pgpwde --resume -d 0 --passphrase "your passphrase"
Note: Make sure to use the correct drive number. If you are not sure about the drive number then run the pgpwde --enum command. This will display the drives on your PC or laptop.
1. Click Start and type in cmd and Start search field and then click OK. This opens a Command Line window.
2. Navigate to the PGP Desktop folder in C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop (Windows 7 32-bit)
or C:\Program Files <x86>\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop (Windows 7 64-bit).
