If you have encrypted your home partition with Fedora 9, can you please tell me what happens when you copy some files out to:
1) another machine that is not encrypted, and
2) to a memory stick hot-plugged into the encrypted machine.
Do the files get copied over in an encrypted or a clear state?
I ask because when I tried it some years back on another OS, the files went over encrypted, and it made synchronisation and backup near impossible. I'd like to know if Fedora handles things in a friendlier way.
