Hi, I was thinking of turning off Filevault 2 on Macbook 12 with El Cap. Is it true that the only way to access the data on Macbook 12 with filevault 2 turned off is to remove the soldered on flash drive? Or can you attached an external bootable drive and access the unencrypted data that way. I have the 1.3ghz version of the laptop and asking if there are any noticeable speed differences for those who have used it with filevault 2 turned on and off. I use it to edit raw 36 megapixel images and any speed increases are welcome.
