Any offers? I'd like all patitions to be encrypted ideally. and I think the names I've chosen give the game away as to what each partition will be used for.
I somehow thought you were running OS X 10.7 (Lion) which I refered to when I mentioned using FileVault2.
I apologize profusely for steering you wrong on that.
FileVault2 is a feature (and in my opinion one of the better features) of Lion. You can achieve similar results in Snow Leopard but you have to use Disk Utility to create an encrypted Disk Image on your HD.
I'm not on my Mac, but I think you reach that option through
New>Blank Disk Image>Encrypted
Will try to chase down detailed instructions (providing I remember) for how to do that.
I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
