So, in the past I've used PGP disk encryption on Snow Leopard. Filevault 2 seems a lot more elegant though, much more integrated, so when I move to Lion I want to use its' built-in encryption. My question: can you choose a password that ISN'T your login password to encrypt the hard drive? Also, does it encrypt the Windows and/or recovery partition? My old PGP password was about 40 characters long, and I only ha to enter it once every few weeks, when I rebooted. My much shorter login password I'd enter several times a day to install software and whatever. I think it's a bit silly (though great to get newbies actually USING IT) to be forced to encrypt with your login password - disk encryption is supposed to be used with a long password, but you don't want to have to be typing that in three times a day to install software and so forth. Thanks for any help!
