Use an SSD boot drive and keep Users on an encrypted data drive
Authored by: sv1cec on Oct 10, '12 10:43:26AM

One comment on this, even though it is not directly appicable to the conditions of the author. If instead of having your user files on an internal drive, you have them on an external one, it is always prudent to include an administrator user, whose home directory is in the boot drive. In that way, even if your external drive dies, you can still boot the system and take action.

I have bootable USB repair sticks for that purpose and an encrypted Time Machine backup of both drives and Carbon Copy Cloner daily backups of both drives (non-encrypted) so I think I can deal with any eventuality.
