Decrypt partial version of crypt?

If I only have a subset of files from an old encrypted remote, can I still use the info from that encrypted remote to decrypt them? Like can I just put those files in a folder, create a new encrypted remote that is the exact same except points at this folder instead of the original remote, and use rclone to decrypt them so their usable? Trying to recover only files that I can’t redownload.

Yes that should work provided you have the correct credentials. You can move crypted files about and they will still decrypt just fine.

Thank you for clarifying this.
