Sorry if this has been asked before, I did a quick look and couldn't find anything. Time Machine doesn't seem to include any sort of security for backups - what is the point in having a password protected account when you do backups that go onto a disk that everyone can view? Or is there security and I've missed it? I reinstalled OS X 10.5 for the 10.5.2 update and plugged in my Time Machine hard drive. I was able to view everything.
