I am setting up a clean install of Mavericks on a mid 2010 Mac Pro (I have already manually moved my data over from the old system) and I am wondering about a few questions regarding FileVault: 1) Is it worth it to activate it on a Mac Pro? Obviously, the chances of it getting stolen are smaller than with a laptop. On the other hand, if there are no downsides to it, why not? It might make me sleep a little easier knowing that my information is secure, should someone ever brake into my house. Are there any downsides? 2) I also plan on setting up a TimeMachine backup to separate internal drive. Can I activate TM now, even though I might activate FileVault later on? Or should I start up TM only after I have activated FileVault in order to avoid confusing TM? 3) I also plan on setting up a scheduled SuperDuper clone backup to an external firewire hard drive. As with the TM backup, can I start it now, or should I wait until after I have activated FileVault? 4) What is the best way to encrypt the TM and SuperDuper backups? I have heard there are several options. Thanks!
