This is my first attempt to use boxcryptor. I am trying a scenario where I encrypt a file named Testing.docx located in folder: boxcryptor/Google Drive/Encrypted. After encrypting and syncing, I find the file on Google website in drive.google.com in folder My Drive/Encrypted with name Testing.docx.bc. Now I assume that my computer crashes, and I need to access this file from the Google website.
From Firefox browser I double-click on the file, get “No preview available” with a download button. I click download and Firefox saves it in Downloads folder. Can’t open it from there, since it is “not in Boxcryptor Location.” So I try to copy Testing.docx.bc to my PC folder Boxcryptor/Google Drive/Encrypted, but this doesn’t work (“File type not allowed”). Message is:
“Encrypted files with the .bc extension are not allowed in the Boxcryptor drive. They can only be used in your original location.”
I actually can’t find an "original location" on this PC where I can access this file’s contents. I certainly wouldn't have an "original location" on a different PC. I must be missing something. Appreciate any help.
