hello fellow hoarders
I have been recently reading a lot about encryption, how and what many here use it. I think I found the best practice in my case that is to use boxcryptor, that allows me to use files in my local disk all at the same time that it encrypts and syncs to my dropbox account. I'm using windows btw
I kind of struggle with the idea of having a container somewhere that has to be mounted locally and uploaded to the cloud as a single file (with exceptions of using other softwares to split files e.g. hashbackup, winrar, 7z, etc)... that is why I didn't pick veracrypt. Cryptomator is also not the most handy, although it could have some advantages like creating much smaller volumes and actually making them split into multiple, smaller, parts when encrypted....
So boxcryptor seems to do the job just fine and although it is a container... but what I don't appreciate is that it needs to be online to check for my credentials/plan... I would really prefer not to having to be online for this (I know I need to be online for the files to sync anyway). What could be some alternatives to this? containers may be of choice but are not preferred, free is always preferred but not mandatory
