    Is it possible to mount/read data from a hdd over firewire that is not booted into 'target' mode?

    My scenario

    - cMBP 1
    - cMBP 2 (target) this machine is fully encrypted without a efi password.

    I know i can reboot the (target) machine into target mode but since this machine is encrypted i can't read/write from the target machine without authenticate . But this machine is still turned on and "just" locked with the screensaver password.

    Can this be done?

    so you are trying to steal stuff from the other machine? And we should help you?

    Not even close to that? It's a question and this is a forum for questions. If you really want to know, i am just curious since it was possible to do this before 10.7.2.
