10.5: How to use Time Machine with FileVault
Authored by: blackjack556 on Nov 21, '08 05:25:54PM

yes i am getting the same type of experience too on my leopard 10.5.5. my TM is doing backups "continuously" even when logged on.

what was weird though was when i checked my TM preferences, it shows that it is set to NOT back up my FV home folder. so i unchecked it. the TM still does the same thing as before i unchecked it.

i believe two things are happening here (with the newer OS):

1) continuous backups for when one wants to recover individual files while logged
2) full back ups when one logs out. this is used on full restore when an HD crashes

i have no way of validating this yet, but i would appreciate more inputs from an expert.
