That's right, for new writes, but when encryption is set the entire database is encrypted immediately using an asynchronous background thread.

I'd have thought you can just reason this through to get to the correct answer.

Nice question Gail.

Great question. For me, I couldn't decide between the background task running after the ALTER DATABASE command completed or immediately, before the ALTER DATABASE completed, as the background thread is asynchronous and I wasn't sure if the ALTER DATABASE had other work to do after it kicked the thread off.

Fortunately, I chose correctly :-)
