I just turned Filevault on (Snow Leopard, in case it matters) and i want to make sure I've done everything prudent to make it effective - IOW, is filevault known to be pretty much useless (like WEP, for example) under certain common circumstances unless you *also* do X, Y, Z? Here's the setup: one user is Admin-level, which is never logged on unless i'm updating firefox or other stuff. Main user is a NON-admin user logged in all day, laptop always running. Screensaver lock ON, pass required. Encrypted VM on. Filevault ON with a master pass set. The admin user does NOT have filevault on but "he" has no content to speak of (or is that necessary too?) Keychains are not separately locked. Time machine is on, but i haven't checked the backup disk to see if my old unencrypted home is still on there..
