For the odd files that might contain sensite data, like old scanned credit card statements, I store these in encrypted .dmg files using DropDMG. (If you know the passphrase, you can open an encrypted .dmg file on any Mac without needing the software installed). That way if anyone ever get hold of my backup data the financial stuff would hopefully be safe.

- February 2006 - Evan at Newsvine praises DropDMG as being one of “5 Little-known, awesome apps for Mac OS X”:
This little app is also shareware, and it’s a fantastic little find. The fact that it’s fully AppleScript-able means that I was able to write a backup script in a matter of minutes. I actually like this much more than any of the backup software I researched. I use it just about every week and the only drawback is that it offers so many options for encryptions and compressions and file types that it does require a little research prior to diving in and packaging your precious files.
