hi all,

I've a question around backing up encrypted disks.

If I backup my encrypted sparse bundle from my mac (Mac A) to a remote server and then download the sparse bundle disk to a separate mac (Mac B) - will I be able to open the sparse bundle disk on Mac B by inputting only the password.

Does the fact that the UUID has changed make a difference to decrypting the sparse bundle disk?

It shouldn't, I have pushed them between 2 local Macs and it worked great!
