  1. I'm thinking about enabling FileVault on my Mac. The current version of FileVault encrypts the entire disk. As I prepare to use FileVault, I wanted to make sure Retrospect 12.5 is compatible and can reliably backup and restore files on my hard drive. I found the following (somewhat dated) information in the manual for Retrospect 12, page 112: So from this quote, it appears Retrospect 12 will be able to backup and restore files on a FileVault-encrypted hard disk. I'm not talking about the sparse image files on the disk, rather the actual unencrypted files. A call to Retrospect support (to double-check) led to the technician insisting Retrospect doesn't support backing up files protected by FileVault. I directed him to this section of the manual, but this did not change his understanding of the matter. I am confused by this, because the manual seems to indicate Retrospect can reliably backup and restore files in this scenario. So, I'm looking to experts on this forum for their experiences (or expectations) with FileVault. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer. Retrospect 12.5.0 (111) Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.3
  2. I've got several users on OS 10.6.8. Their home folders are encrypted with FileVault. When they are logged-in, their home folder appears to retrospect as another disk on their machine, and I can mark it for backup. I recently acquired a new 10.6.8 mac, and installed the latest client on it (Client As opposed to my other machines, which have been configured for a while, and had their client software upgraded various times, this was a new mac, with a fresh install of the client. On this particular machine, Retrospect does not discover the volume holding the user's FileVault home folder when they are logged in. Any suggestions on how to get their home folder to be recognized, so that it can get backed up?
