Sorry for the lurid title, I didn’t know how to explain it any better.
I’m currently setting up rclone on my server and have a few questions regarding encryption.
I can choose between the following options, which you have explained on the website also understandably.
How to encrypt the filenames. Enter a string value. Press Enter for the default ("standard"). Choose a number from below, or type in your own value 1 / Don't encrypt the file names. Adds a ".bin" extension only. \ "off" 2 / Encrypt the filenames see the docs for the details. \ "standard" 3 / Very simple filename obfuscation. \ "obfuscate"
But it’s still a little confusing for me.
- If I set “off”, then the filename is displayed with the attachment ‘.bin’, for example ‘Textfile.txt.bin’. Without the passwords, does one have the chance to decrypt this file somehow?
- Can I rename or move the files encrypted with “off” in the cloud?
- What do I do if at worst, my server is broken. So, there are no backups of the operating system and I have to reinstall everything, including rclone, can rclone read the files again when I enter the passwords?
- Related to point 3, should the server be broken, what do I need for rclone to work again as before?
Sorry if the questions have already been answered somewhere in detail, I couldn’t find anything on the fast track and wanted to ensure myself before I load all my data into the cloud and then they are not secure.
