Re: Bootable external encrypted backup
I am referring to a post with the same title from the PGP Whole Disk Encryption for Macintosh forum from March 31, 2010. I'm having the same issues that the external drive that I WDEd first and then cloned my system to using CCC does not boot. I'm using a 250 GB external disk, my internal disk is 500 GB. My question is, does this have anything to do with the size of the external disk? The last person in that post didn't seem to have had any problems booting from an external drive and wrote:
"Duane - per your last, I can confirm that WDEing the external first and then cloning without /PGPWDE01,02 works just fine. I can successfully boot the external, and it's only after OSX starts that I'm prompted for the internal password. Using a FW800 external 500GB disk (same size as internal), CCC 3, incremental mode, preserve root items on target."
Does it require a bigger external drive to make an encrypted bootable clone? Should it be the same size as the internal drive?
