Re: What are the advantages/disadvantages of full Data Encryption?
I've noticed when doing large file transfers between 2 encrypted partitions my transfer speed was knocked down noticeably. (a few megabytes/sec) My processor was bottlenecking the process though as it was at a full hundred precent, this is an amd64 3700+.
edit: really what's the point of encryption if your are going to make an unencrypted backup?
Maybe encrypt the backup with a different key...
