why exactly do you want the backups encrypted when the disk resides _locally_ 
where the unencrypted data is?

for a setup like this i usually prefer a combination of truecrypt and rsync. 
this way all data on the shuttle disk is protected if it travels but i still 
have easy access to it and not to worry if software does support it. you can 
even ntfs format it for multi platform support.
