Encryption on remote Files

Is there a possibility to encrypt files, if they are already on a remote path?
remote1:plain/plaintext.txt is a normal File on remote
now I want to encrypt it at the same remote1:crypted/plaintext.txt

without down & uploading the files?

Nope. You cant. It has to download and upload and use bandwidth but you can create the encrypted remote on the same provider and then use the move our copy command.

thank u for the fast answer

like Rclone move remote1:plain/plaintext.txt remote1:crypted, right?

Well no. It would have to be look like this:
Rclone move remote1:plain remote1-crypted:

Where remote1-crypted would be a crypted remote on remote1:
