10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data
Authored by: loren_ryter on Mar 20, '08 07:08:19AM

Bugs should be made widely known no matter what they are. In Apple's rush to get new products out they have caused a lot of problems, and Leopard is absolutely full of them.

As for FileVault, this is a nice tip for those who use it. But let me say also that FileVault has NEVER worked properly. As a developer, I had in the end to make one product simply incompatible with FV and disallow it because the work around was way too slow. Under the hood, it's just not a transparent system as it should be when you are logged in securely.

If you really need an encrypted disk, try PGP or similar.

10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data

I completely agree. Unfortunately, as PGP Desktop does not do partition-level encryption, it is not possible to use it and Boot Camp on the same machine. For me, this forces me back to FileVault for the time being. Here's hoping PGP implements this functionality soon (the Windows version has had it for ages).
