This is the best article I've seen on FileVault after spending hours researching. Thanks for a great resource!
I have never used encryption and am investigating this for the first time. One thing I'm not clear on is the ramifications of a hard drive failure when a user had FileVault enabled. IF their only backup was one of the FileVault sparseimage, would there be any way to restore the sparseimage on a new drive, setup FileVault on the newly-installed OS and unencrypt the data? Or is this why it is recommended to back up the files unencrypted in another location?
