Cryptomator changes existing files

I do next

  1. Create vault, unlock it
  2. Add few files (a, b, c)
  3. Lock
  4. Save copy of current vault.

after that
5. Unlock vault, delete all files (a, b, c)
6. Add these files again (from the origin source)
7. Lock

  1. diff -qr vault vault-copy
    and I see that three files (in case a, b, c files) will have same names, but different content…

The question: is it awaited behavior?


So you compared the encrypted files? Yes, that is expected because a new secure random “content key” and “nonce” are generated with each file change, see the diagram here:

Thank you for quick response, it’s clear now.
