Backed up a MAC to Time Machine with encryption enabled. Backup complete now its encrypting data which my understanding takes awhile, much longer than the backups. I turned off Time Machine hoping it speeds up the encryption process. Question, I hoped to do a rebuild on the MAC and reinstall the OS after the backup. Will I be able to recover my data (don't want to re-image from the backups just recover data) prior to the encryption process finishing? It's been on 6% for awhile.
