Does Filevault Slow Down Mac: What You Should Know

Does it?  Q: How does the FCP Fusion software work with FileVault? A: It's very important that you turn off FileVault on your Mac if you plan to use any FCP or other software without encryption in-flight. For the most part, the operating system is able to handle file encryption. But if you use any data processing software with FCP, you should either turn off File Vaults if you don't use encrypted files or encrypt your data before using it. “My Mac can encrypt my files but won't let me view them...” — Apple Mac Users Forum. (Dec 7, 2016) Apple supports encrypting individual files as well as the whole drive(s) and partition(s) in FileVault on OSX 10.11 El Capitan. To encrypt the whole drive, click File | Preferences and then select the Encrypting your computer? Radio button. To create multiple encrypted volumes in the same drive, simply turn off the disk encryption box on the Apple menu by clicking on it and choosing “Turn Off Disk encryption”. You may need to restart after turning off the disk encryption box. If you need to create multiple encrypted volumes in the same disk, you must click the same button twice, just like you do when encrypting individual files.
