Grumble.. This business of backing up the Mac really sucks. Ok, so I used Disk Utility to create a 4.7gig sparse disk (encrypted), copied my document folder in there, and then unmounted it. I was left with a nicely encrypted documents.spareimage file on the desktop. So far so good. So, I go into Disk Utility where I see that image, select it in the left pane and click the Burn icon. It asks for my password and proceeds to burn a DVD. But when I open the DVD, it has all my stuff UNencrypted - not in an encrypted disk image like I thought i was burning!! What am I doing wrong?
