So I was doing some research on disk encryption issues and options, and I stumbled across the FileVault 2 utility. In the past I'd alway just gone into Disk Utility and encrypted my drives that way. I'd read that users had run into issues with encrypted drives locking up, or locking them out and that FileVault 2 was "encryption-light" that offered you high level encryption options, but with a lot more recovery and back doors to get in should you be locked out and to ensure the encrypted drive plays nice with OS X. While that seems appealing, the reason I wanted to encrypt my drive was so that it was a paperweight without the encrypt key. All the recovery options, and on the fly encryption in FireVault 2 makes me nervous that a would be attacker just has more avenues of attack. I'm getting a lot of conflicting information, and I'm just trying to understand, if FileVault 2 is whole disk encryption what's the benefit to using it as opposed to the standard Disk Utility encryption?
