Question about Encypted Dropbox

Hello, i would like to ask an question on my head
I try to move some my grapichs & design files to dropbox and also i want to know they encypted .

Q1: Is encypted mounts delaying or shows more worst performance about reaching files / api requests

Q2: Which encypted mount type is better one for dropbox ?

I'm not sure what that means. Using the encrypted remote adds a layer on top of the mount but the performance impact is really not noticeable if that is what you are asking as anything modern from a server/client it would be no impact.

Anything you want to use as it doesn't matter. It's really up to you on what flags you want.

so, is there any performance diffrencess on this rcloen config selections, btw thanks for answers

Choose a number from below, or type in your own value.
   / Encrypt the filenames.
 1 | See the docs for the details.
   \ "standard"
 2 / Very simple filename obfuscation.
   \ "obfuscate"
   / Don't encrypt the file names.
 3 | Adds a ".bin" extension only.
   \ "off"
filename_encryption>
Option to either encrypt directory names or leave them intact.

NB If filename_encryption is "off" then this option will do nothing.
Enter a boolean value (true or false). Press Enter for the default ("true").
Choose a number from below, or type in your own value
 1 / Encrypt directory names.
   \ "true"
 2 / Don't encrypt directory names, leave them intact.
   \ "false"
directory_name_encryption>

I try to be precise in answers as the more layers you add on put on top of something, there is always a performance hit.

The question is how much and any option you pick there assuming you aren't running a ten year old device, I can't imagine you'd see any issues.

I use the standard/true on mine:

filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
