10.6: Let Time Machine backup File Vault while logged in
Authored by: m4x on Feb 17, '11 09:12:01AM
Beware of Time Machine omitting certain folders with this method!
I was about to abandon my own backup hint, after discovering that some folders seemed to be left out from the backup. After some experimenting I narrowed it down to folders within my home disk image, having a name beginning with my user name, not being copied to the backup.
Renaming, or simply putting something before the name seems to solve it. Also, it doesn't seem to affect folders on other volumes.
Can anyone confirm/reproduce this?
