After reading http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4790, I'm afraid that your disk - after half an encryption - is in a rather inconsistent state. My guess is that - if anybody can help - it's Apple. But I wouldn't be amazed if they tell that formatting the drive and reinstalling the OS is the only option to use this this machine again.
Let's hope you have a good backup of the things you prefer not to loose.
Bear with me I'm a newbie guys. I decided to encrypt my minimac with file vault 2 and halfway through the encrypting my mini mac crashed and reset itself.
It will not start up now and just displays a grey screen with a folder and a question mark.
I have run the mac disk utility first aid but it cant fix it when i boot into recovery mode. I bought disk warrior 4.4 thinking it could help. It just sees a locked drive so it can't fix it.
How do I unlock or turn off the encryption in order for me to run disk warrior and fix my drive?
Is their such a thing as typing a command into the terminal in recovery mode that will turn off the encryption?
Are there any other options to recover my files and programs that will restore my mac it to its previous state?I can see all the files and programs are still their on the drive in recovery mode.
I'm running Mavericks OS . Hoping anyone can help please?
