OK that doesn't sound like any kind of problem and I always use Smart Update anyway. I gather that following this initial encryption process subsequent backups will not be slowed down at all either.

One of the reasons I wanted to do this is that a couple years ago I had an external Maxtor die on me without the slightest warning and that was the drive used for Time Machine and SuperDuper! backups. The drive was still under warranty and Maxtor said they would replace it but I was far from happy about sending in the drive like that, especially since it was before I started using 1Password. Perhaps I was being paranoid but enabling file encryption on the external drive sounds like a positive security step if it doesn't cause problems with SuperDuper!
