10.6: Let Time Machine backup File Vault while logged in
Authored by: NoComment on Jan 28, '10 02:45:59AM

If you want to have your time machine volume secured, use this trick (no matter if you use file vault or not, or if you backup to an external harddrive or a file share):

I've done that with my external harddisk that I use in my office to backup my machine (at home I backup on a server's volume via afp, glad that time machine can backup on many different locations!).

Don't forget that you can limit the max size of the sparsebundle, too!
