10.6: Let Time Machine backup File Vault while logged in
Authored by: chucky23 on Apr 28, '10 10:15:51AM


I just found the exact same problem.


I'm wondering what the cause of it is. The first thing I can think of is to disable FileVault and then immediately turn it back on. The theory being that I first enabled FV under 10.5, and perhaps 10.6 has a different method that doesn't make the system think the FV sparseimage is full of phantom gigabytes.

Unfortunately, disabling and then re-enabling FV will take several hours, so I probably won't test it for a few days, but that's my first idea.

(Is there anyone out there reading this who first enabled FV in 10.6? If so, does Getting Info on your home folder in the Finder show a "used" count far in excess of what's really there?)
