Encryption of external hard drive wont continue after restarting laptop.

description

After 70% done the encryption process to my external hard drive, I shut down my computer and left it for the night as I read that the process could be stopped and continued at any point. I went to continue, however when I try access the hard drive it asks me to format it an erase all data on it, and won't give me the option to continue encrypting it.
Please help.
