I'm trying to understand how the portable version works on Linux. I read the docs on the the portable version, including the local storage, and don't understand how it works.
On Windows, the product creates a virtual drive that appears to show me the unencrypted copy of files that BoxCryptor encrypts before sending to Dropbox. (If I encrypt a 3 GB file, it takes several minutes. However, if I then double-click on the file in the Boxcryptor virtual drive, it opens immediately, telling me that it's not decrypting it; it's the original unencrypted file.)
On Linux, I added Dropbox (/home/myuser/Dropbox) and local storage /home/myuser/BoxCryptor and then told Dropbox to sync the top folders from my Dropbox account. The files downloaded and are encrypted in the Dropbox folder as on Windows.
If I open the portable version, and click on Dropbox, it shows me an unencrypted view of the metadata of my files on dropbox.com (not my local Dropbox folder). If I double-click a file in the portable product, it appears to download a decrypted version of it from dropbox.com to somewhere on my computer. It does not appear to access my local DropBox folder or the local storage folder. On the other hand, I added a test file to the local storage folder using the portable client and it wasn't synced to DropBox.
So, what's the point of the local storage with the Linux portable version, and is there a way to access my unencrypted files with the portable version such that their encrypted copies are synced back to Dropbox?
