Does anyone know if the new capability to do encrypted time machine backups over a network in Mountain Lion will backup to a volume on another Mac? All I see mentioned in the Apple information or the reviews is Time Capsule. Currently we backup a MacBook Pro to a Firewire 800 drive I have attahed to a Mac Mini we use as a home server. However, I have been unwilling to use a network backup for my MacBook Air because I have sensitive information for work on it and need to have my backup encrypted, so I plug it into an encrypted USB drive every few days and let TM run. If Mountain Lion would give me the capability to migrate this process to an encrypted network back-up on my home server, it would be a reason to upgrade sooner.




MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 11-inch, Core i7
