Encrypted Apple TimeMachine Backups (eg on TimeCapsule)

June 21, 2011 Comments Off on Encrypted Apple TimeMachine Backups (eg on TimeCapsule)

Awesome – the sequence is here. Explanations see source

<create backup mb.sparsebundle>

mv mb.sparsebundle mb0.sparsebundle

hdiutil convert -format UDSB -o mb.sparsebundle/ -encryption AES-256 mb0.sparsebundle

<mount disk, enter password and store it in the keychain>

<move password into System keychain>

<unmount disk>

hdiutil resize -size 200g mb.sparsebundle/

cp mb0.sparsebundle/com.apple.TimeMachine.MachineID.plist mb.sparsebundle/

The non-trivial part of course is (a) copying the MachineID file, and (b) moving the password into the System keychain so that backup uses it automatically. Keep in mind that the initial mb.sparsebundle is only created on a network drive (eg TimeCapsule), not on a local drive. However, the sparsebundle can then be copied onto an attached drive and still works

Another interesting aside: the “hdiutil resize” command limiting the size of the backup disc – important if you want to use your TimeCapsule for backups and data and want to keep some space free.

Not sure that this is a bad thing though – or do you want to subsidise either financially or via performance issues – those guys who decide they need to download a couple of movies per day? Bandwidth is not free after all.

Not sure why people still buy this one… Maybe because they think it is a stylish computer. I give it that – it is stylish. Bought it right when it came out. Dont really regret it, but if you plan to do any kind of work on it, forget it. My suggestion: 13inch Pro + iPad combo. Approx the same price, and much better…
