I am attempting to make our household paperless and am new to this, so bear with me.
I am in the process of scanning all of our paper documents and saving them to google drive for cloud storage. I am also planning on purchasing an external hard drive to be stored in a safe for additional local backup. I'm using boxcryptor to encrypt sensitive documents in the cloud. My question is this- I'd like to back up all of my google drive contents to my external hard drive on a weekly basis, but I'd like the hard drive to have everything unencrypted. What is the best workflow for this?
Right now, my workflow is scan the document using a scan snap scanner. If it's not sensitive, I scan directly to google drive and then rename and file accordingly. If it is sensitive, I scan to a folder on my laptop and then drag (i.e. Make a copy) into an encrypted folder in my google drive via boxcryptor. I still have an unencrypted version of the file on my computer, but I'd prefer to back up the unencrypted files to my hard drive keeping the organization in google drive, not just a random file with tons of sensitive documents.
Any suggestions? Trying to be as efficient and organized as possible before I'm too far gone in this project to undo something without a huge headache!
