    How many of you have your hard drive formatted with journaled encrypted? How does it differ from just having a password on your user log in? Any downfalls from this type of format?

    In the core of a black hole.
    The difference is that no one can read your data if the disk is encrypted (Using filevault2).
    Example: Your Laptop gets stolen, if you only have password enabled and it is a difficult password no one can log into the laptop but if they take it out all your data is assessable, not so when encryption..
