Several years back I made the mistake of backing up all of my data in 10GB split file archives with 7zip (all encrypted) and storing them on bluray.
One (and only one) of the split files developed data corruption. The entire archive became unextractable.
I had another backup.
I know that rclone stores individual files which makes it infinitely better then the above solution. But I am curious on how rclone deals with data corruption per individual files. Also, when encrypting file names and file directories does rclone use a metadata file to know which is which, and if so what happens if that metadata file gets corrupted?
IIRC rclone has the option for checksum verification, so that's nice.
