I was wondering if anyone knows how secure an encrypted disk image is? Can it be hacked? Is the encryption just to mount the disk, or is all the data encrypted as well (as I understand is done with FileVault). I have files that I sync between computers on a portable hard drive containing info that is confidential (no not that... I am a health care worker!). If I lost that drive, what are the chances that someone could access the data (and get me sent to jail!). I have not tried FileVault for this as I heard that it has been problematic in earlier versions of OS X. Is this now resolved, and is FileVault better than an encrypted disk image?? Thanks everyone.
