    Yes, works fine. I'm guessing you mean filevault 2

    Just to note, your backups will be unencrypted. You actually have to encrypt your time machine volume as well for the backups to be encrypted.

    Sadly I have not found an easy way of doing it. If you set a new time machine volume up there is a checkbox, but on an existing one it seems that the checkbox is greyed out. Hopefully someone can chime in with an idea.
