Resume Symantec PGP whole disk encryption.

Some time when your encrypting a disk using Symantec PGP whole disk encryption tool it get paused. But when you try to resume the PGP encryption via the graphical user interface it won't work. In such a scenario you need to use the command line PGP tool. Using the command line tool you can resume the encryption.

First you need go to the command line by pressing windows key + R (it will open the Run) and type "cmd" without quotes.

Then change the working directory by using;
if the system is 32 bit :-  
 cd C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop\ 


or if the system is 64 bit :-
 cd C:\Program Files (x86)\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop\ 



Then type ;

PGPWDE --disk 0 --stop -p  
and

PGPWDE --disk 0 --resume -p 
Now you can check the progress via the graphical user interface. Also you can use this tool to do all the things same as the GUI.
