A few years ago I set a master password.  I know the master password but would like to change it.


I've read a few articles and it says to do this via System Preferences/Security/File Vault; however, when I get to File Vault, the master password info/screen/area is not there.


I am running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b)


Can anyone help me do this?  I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
