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.

    I have tried a number of these topics to the left prior to posting the question.  I think the problem is that while I can change my administrator's password via Accounts, I can't seem to access/find the area for a Master Password as it is not in the FileVault area.  I'm just wondering if there is another area to access where the Master Password is set.
