    Hello

    I was just wondering if anyone's upgraded a FileVault encrypted ML installation to Mavericks? Were there any problems?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd recommend having a backup of your data, in fact many of the developers here clone their drive to another drive so they can easily recover if need be.

    I'm not sure about FV and upgrading it, but given how quickly it is to unencrypted a drive, maybe its safer to do that before upgrading to mavericks.

    I had some issues, though I don't think they were related to FileVault: first time updating to DP3 made me unable to login. Restored from backup, and updated again, no issue this time.

    So no unexpected issues that would specifically be caused by FileVault. But yes, backup.
