How do I clone a filevault 2 encrypted drive without the password?
I'm working on a repair/upgrade for a friend, and part of that is moving their data from a hd to an ssd. I don't have their password, but it seems like I should be able to block copy the data from the old hd to the new ssd without decrypting it first. Is this possible? I have tried carbon copy cloner and super duper, but neither of those will even touch an encrypted drive. Disk utility sees the drive, but when I start the restore, the progress message says "copying (null) from (null)" and I get 'Source volume on device "/dev/disk4" is not valid for restoring' and 'Could not validate source - error 254'.
Is this a good question?
