So I have no choice...

OK, I decrypted the drive overnight in the Finder and I was able to boot into it. So that must mean the recovery partition was already on it, yes? I'll see how the new encrypted El Capitan goes.

Does that mean that SD can update while decrypting on the fly? Or do I first unlock it before smart updating? Also is this the same level of encryption as file vault? Also just to be clear, when you...

Hi thanks for the reply, yes I just wanted to check though that SD still does put related files together when making a new clone and that I'm not imagining it.
