Filevault protection

Was thinking about the dangers of using filevault. Specifically, harddrive failure and being unable to access my encrypted data.

Could I work around this potential obstacle by backing up with filevault open?

I know that it has been posted a number of times that it is better to create a nonFV account and backup from there to ensure a clean backup.

But what happens if there is something wrong with my home folder (filevaulted) and my backup gets corrupted when I run SuperDuper?

I am concerned both my harddrive and backup become inaccessible at the same time.

What about backing up while filevault is open to something like a Rocstor harddrive? The Rocstor drive is encrypted so the backup is not vulnerable.

Any suggestions or clarity on this?

Just wish security was more simple or better yet unnecessary.

There's another thread that just came up in the last day or so that provides a solution: if you used the special volume the FileVault volume "exposes" as the source for the backup (it'll be in the source pop-up when you're logged into your account), you can back that up to the Rocstor.

Hi Dave,

Sorry I missed that. I thought I read everything on FileVault.

Not sure I understand what you mean by special volume exposed by FileVault. Could you redirect me to that thread?

Thanks,
brent
