In Disk Utility, you can encrypt an external drive when you format it as MAC OS Extended (Journaled, Encryted).  In Finder, you can encrypt an external drive by right-clicking on the drive name, then clicking Encrypt.  Is there any difference between these two processes?  Do you end up with the same result?

Mac OS X (10.7.4)
