    So, FileVault 2.0 in Lion encrypts the entire boot volume. It also seems to allow you to do this for the Time Machine volume.

    Is it possible to do it to other drives connected to the computer? I far prefer this to the disk image on the disk approach, which I know you can do...

    And... figured it out myself. Choose encrypted when formatting the drive in disk utility :)
