10.6.7: Back up to encrypted image
Authored by: langiter on Apr 06, '11 07:47:26AM

Thanks m4x, this is working great for me in 10.6.7. And chucky23, your comment (7:58am) was also needed. I've also got it backing up to an encrypted sparsebundle, which other people have worked out how to do. The best instructions I've found are by sunkid on InsanelyMac.

I've added a couple of refinements myself, such as an AppleScript for automating the mounting of the encrypted image (without compromising its password), and restoring files from FileVault home folder smoothly—just put an alias to your home folder in /Volumes. :)

I'm hoping to post my complete method and script in a new hint on this site, by the title "10.6.7: Set up encrypted Backup in Time Machine for FileVault".
