If you were using File Vault, I think your backups would be encrypted too, but I don't use File Vault so I don't know for certain.
What I do is create a small encrypted disk image and store all of my sensitive information such as passwords, etc. on it. Your keychain on MacOS X is similarly encrypted, so those passwords are automatically safe. But any documents you had or e-mail messages, or address book info is all available.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.2), 1.83Ghz/2GB Ram/160 HD et al.
Currently Being ModeratedJun 6, 2008 11:15 AM (in response to Graham - Sonos)Thanks for the reply. Not the answer i was hoping for. I have some of my most sensitive stuff in a dmg with a password, but lots of emails etc that are not.
Was thinking since time machine uses the new zfs (or whatever its called that allows multiple links to files) would it at least require a mac to mount the disk? can windows read it?
