10.7: Enable Time Machine encryption on Lion
Authored by: Crazor on Jul 26, '11 02:55:09AM

Update: Even when you create an encrypted volume with Disk Utility, the encryption can be removed. Just select File => Disable encryption in DU.

But from what I've read in diskutil's manpage, it is only possible to convert Core Storage volumes to normal volumes that were created by converting a normal volume in the first place. So I guess that disabling encryption on a volume that was created by formatting a partition as "Mac OS Extended (journaled, encrypted) will result in an unencrypted Core Storage volume.

I'm trying this right now and will report back when decryption is finished.
