Encryption problem with rclone


#1

I was recommended rclone by someone and I am using the rclone crypt parameter for storing encrypted backup files (in .bin format).

Problem is that this encrypted file - as I can understand - can only be decrypted using rclone.

Is it somehow possible to use rclone to upload backups to cloud encrypted with gpg or something that has tools easily available on all OS so the backup can be downloaded to any OS and decrypted locally to view the content?

That is correct…

However rclone is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, FreeBSD etc. There is also an Android version. I think the only major platform missing is IOS.

You can encrypt your backups with gpg or some other tool before uploading.
