10.6.7: Set up encrypted Backup in Time Machine for FileVault
Authored by: alexburke on May 09, '11 09:32:26AM

... or you could wait a couple of months for Lion, which has full-disk encryption and fully-encrypted backups, instead of the mess which is the combination of Time Machine and FileVault.

If you're running Snow Leopard you're on Intel already, and all Core 2 Duo machines should work fine with Lion (the few machines with Core Solo or Core Duo CPUs are left out).

So, just wait for Lion.

10.6.7: Set up encrypted Backup in Time Machine for FileVault

You bet! Lion should have the nice solution. But alas, my favourite PPC programs won't run on Lion, for Rosetta is no more. This can be an option for those of us staying on Snow Leopard.

Lion is out. As it turns out, Lion only supports encryption to locally connected disks, not Time Machine disks. Still need this work-around.
