I want to encrypt a few folders on my external drive, then back them up along with some unencrypted data to Backblaze Personal (using Backblaze's own client for backing up).
I don't think the cloud choice really matters here since I'm intending to use Rclone for encryption only as sort of a more stable version of Cryptomator where I would mound the encrypted folders as extra drives, then view and modify the files from there, then back up the encrypted folder full of obfuscated files.
All the guides I've come across treat Rclone as a cloud backup solution which can encrypt along the way, not an encryption tool. Backblaze Personal doesn't allow that (and neither am I interested in using it as such).
Would doing this double the local storage use?
Would using rclone in this manner incur any noticeable performance hit?
