What does hard drive encryption do to files when they are copied elsewhere?
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.
