I'm assuming that the Time Machine data on the Time Capsule is encrypted. Am I right?
It is an option with Lion. You can turn it on even for an existing TM backup disc. I'm not sure if there is a minimum-free-space requirement for the backup disc for this to change work.
I don't see that option anywhere with Time Machine preferences. Yes, it works with directly connected drives and Time Machine. I've read several sources that say it doesn't work if Time Capsule is doing wireless backups.
