I read the following statement regarding Password-protected backups: "If you're traveling by air, chances are you'll have to pack your laptop. That increases the possibility of physical drive damage and (ugh) theft. You need a password-protected backup that you can store on a removable drive." But earlier you didn't encrypt the image files even though password protection was used, have you started to do this? If not I think it's misleading to imply it is a protection at all.
