      Please try to run command prompt as administrator and then run the same command again.

          Hi LiV, sorry to see that it’s not fixing your issue. Can you try the following:
          Open command prompt and run the following command:
          fsutil behavior set disableencryption 1

          Restart the computer and run the following command:
          fsutil behavior set disableencryption 0

          This will disable encryption and enable it again.

            I have tried this as well and it is not enabling the encryption option. Any other suggestions?
