    Does converting your entire drive to FileVault2 requires to have more than 50% of free disk space? Is it copy-and-convert like FileVault1?
    Or is it different and can convert drive to encryption without copying everything to a new partition?

    Not to sound coy, given that Lion has just released. Why not try it yourself and report back.

    Not to sound redundant but if I could try it myself would I be asking the question?
