I do make encrypted Time Machine backups to my Synology NAS which works exactly how I want it. But I recently had to restore from that backup and it's obviously very slow. Since this was a planned restore I thought next time I'll do an unencrypted backup to my external SSD right before restoring and will have a much faster restore.
- Am I right that restoring from an unencrypted backup will be faster?
- Is there anything that Time Machine does not include into an unencrypted backup which would be included into an encrypted one?
