I'm not sure if a KB article exists for this, but this is a little quirk in the product (for now).
When a policy enforcement kicks in, the work to be done on the disk is re-calculated, and the progress bar is set back to zero. However, no work is actually lost. Your machines are still encrypting, but the encryption is momentarily interrupted every time a policy is enforced.
Hope this helps,
Thankyou Tim. That certainly makes sense. I thought it was a problem as described in the opening post as disk encryption can be a very long process, so I didn't have any confidence that the encryption was actually ever going to complete.
Thinking about it now though, I very much doubt encryption can be undone in an instant, so it makes sense that it'd just carry on.
I gather it's likely this little quirk will be ironed out in a future patch/release?
It's certainly being looked at, if it hasn't already been fixed for 6.2. I can't give you any promises/specifics though!
