The FileVault encryption is at disk level, so files are decrypted when you switch on and log in to your Mac.
Hi Joseph.

And this is the exact source of the problem. Consider this situation:

  1. I finish my work time
  2. I logout from my office machine
  3. On the train,,till going home, I shan’t to edit a file on my sync service
  4. I access to my file via my sync app
  5. But couse I logged out data on my Mac is in this moment encrypted and synced.

So I could not access to my file couse the FileVault realized I logged out, and till for the host os I result logged out all my home directory results encrypted.

Or I am missing some passage??
