When TM begins to backup it spits out this warning message.

"time machine is backing up an encrypted disk to an unencrypted disk"

Only its not! All thats being backed up is the internal 1TB SSD to an external spinner. Neither are encrypted, so what gives?

Yes, will need to ignore the message.
Or use something like Carbon Copy Cloner for backups.

I do use CCC. But more so for recovery in the event of total failure, and only on Macintosh HD, whereas TM I use to back up not only Macintosh HD, but also external SSDs/HDDs all to one 8TB HDD.

CCC acts as MacOS only recovery, while TM acts as file recovery. At least thats how Ive personally gone about utilizing both. None the less, just one more reason my disdain for the T2 grows more and more with each passing day.

Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.
