Wow! That was fast! I was hoping it would be simple.

Given the sizes of my directories (mathematically even the entire FireVault account should fit), could I simply:

1) Create a new non firevault account as you recommend (I'm not sure how to do that but hopefully can research it through Mac help or the Net) and then

2) Back up my entire firevault account (since it does take up less space than my entire external drive) if I just

3) accept that it will take a l - o - n - g time (hours? days?) the first time around but then be faster once I've done that painful first time backup and can smartupdate that in the future?

If so, how specifically should I write the script to back up the entire firevaulted account -or would one of the standard ones do that for me as-is?
