Simulating an encrypted physical disk in OS X
Authored by: osxpounder on Feb 07, '08 01:03:04PM


The idea looks really useful, but I wonder if it would be possible to modify the scripts [or whatever needs changing] so that the disk images *does appear* on the desktop, or in Finder, when mounted?

I'd find that very useful. I'd be able to plug in my USB keychain drive, and your clever scripts would cause the password prompt to show up, but once the disk mounted, it would be visible as any other disks are, so that, when it's time for me to leave with my USB drive, I could click an Eject button or do CMD-E.

Is that possible? Is it a lot of trouble?
