I own the WD My Passport Studio 1 TB external hard drive for Mac.
I have set a password that I am prompted to enter each time, I plug in the drive.
Is this actually only a password or are my data on the drive truly encrypted.
I am asking, because I am using the drive for Time Machine backups.
Time Machine offerst the option to encrypt the volume.
Do I really need the Time Machine encryption or is the volume already encrypted by setting the password?
Thanks a lot in advance.
