Device Encryption taking ages

Hello

I am working on enabling Android for Work on my Mi Mix 2 with latest MIUI 10 ROM By Xiaomi.eu
For enabling A4W you need to encrypt the device, so I did.. now I'm stuck at a screen displaying time and a full progress bar with the hint "Encrypting, don't reboot your device"

The process is currently running for 3+ hours, there is not much data on the phone.

I've searched the forum a little and found a few threads about problems with device encryption but coudln't find if it should be working with latest builds, can anyone confirm?
If it is not working.. what are my possibilities from now? - Any chance to get the data back/revert to the state before pressing "encrypt now"?

I didn't expect encrypting an android device would be a problem in late 2018..

Any help is kindly appriciated
Greetings
