I just replied to your support ticket, but also publicly for others to read here:
Encrypting or decrypting files does not change their content in any way. The plaintext content of an encrypted file is exactly equal to the unencrypted file - bit for bit. However, if files contain links or references to other files, these links may break after the encryption due to the different path on the Boxcryptor disk.
- You have the following files
- Illustration.psd references Component.psd
- You encrypt the Creative Work folder which results in the following files:
-> backed by /Users/heyitsme/Dropbox/Creative Work/Illustration.psd.bc
-> backed by /Users/heyitsme/Dropbox/Creative Work/Component.psd.bc
If Illustration.psd references Component.psd everything is fine and the reference is intact when you open Illustration.psd in the Boxcryptor drive. However, if Component.psd is referenced using its absolute path /Users/heyitsme/Dropbox/Creative Work/Component.psd, this link will be broken after encryption because this file does not exist anymore.
So the final question is: Are other files linked or referenced using absolute or relative paths. If an application uses relative paths, everything should be fine because they are not changed due to the encryption. If absolute paths are used, they must be updated after the encryption.
