10.5: How to use Time Machine with FileVault
Authored by: itsme on Apr 05, '08 08:44:43AM

You'll then see a package called username.sparsebundle. Double-click it, enter your login password, and a copy of your home directory will mount. You can drag files off of this copy -- just don't drag any files onto it or delete any files! After you are done, eject the mounted home directory to avoid confusion. There isn't any reason that Apple couldn't automate the restore process; apparently they ran out of time when releasing version 10.5.

so if the only user file that is there is the shared one and not myoldusername.sparsebundle i just dont have a backup of my old filevaulted home folder?
