    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?

    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..
