I am trying to use a newly created APFS encrypted case sensitive APFS partition with Time Machine backups. If I do not check the box encrypt backups, it prompts for the password to turn off encryption.
Does that mean the contents on the disk will no longer be encrypted on APFS encrypted partition?
I do not get it.
How is it able to store data unencrypted on an encrypted APFS partition, or turn it off for that matter.
Will that data be accessible without the password setup already for the encrypted APFS partition?
If I check the box encrypt backups, Time Machine will reformat the partition into an extended journaled partition. So no APFS encrypted partition.
Can someone shed some light on this ?
I mean, how can my encrypted partition suddenly be turned off or is encrypt backups checkbox not needed on backups to an already encrypted APFS partion?
