I meant sparse bundle, it was a typo.

Sparse Bundles do have the ability for encryption. This is done when you create them via Disk Utility. 128 or 512 -bit AES encryption are the options.

Copy and To fields aren't enabled

I just tried to run a backup and the Copy and To fields are disabled. I can't select the HD to backup.

I have a registered copy. It's worked many times before.

Any ideas?
