10.6 tl,dr: I want to archive off a User directory, but given its size, it must go to a mounted drive. I have a damaged user directory, one encrypted with Filevault. I've not found any tools to work on it. I want to archive it off for in hopes of a future recovery. But the Accounts function of SysPref only gives the option of writing the archives to /Users/ where there is a distinct lack of room. Is there any way for the utility to Get a Clue ® & write to another volume? I used cp -a to make a copy, but I have no idea what nefarious nonsense Apple used in Filevault, and don't know if this is sufficient. Suggestions?
