10.6.7: Set up encrypted Backup in Time Machine for FileVault
Authored by: michaelkiaer on May 10, '11 06:08:38PM
I haven't tried the hint so take this with a grain of salt -- but comparing with other hints on the web, I think there's a mistake in Step 1:
  • Create a new plain text file, paste the following text, and replace "$HostUUID" with your UUID
  • should read
  • Create a new plain text file, paste the following text, and replace "YOURUUIDHERE" with your UUID"
  • And in the sample file "com.apple.backupd.$HostUUID" should be "com.apple.backupd.HostUUID" (no dollar sign.)

    Thanks for your feedback, michaelkiaer, great to know someone’s going over my post with a fine-toothed comb. You’re right, my mistake. I’ve just double-checked my own implementation, and both your corrections are…correct.

    Can an admin correct this in the hint?
