We’ve been using Boxcryptor with Google Drive (OS: Windows 10) for several months, but it is clear that BC cannot handle Drive File Stream. Every update causes problems (can’t save, open files etc.). So my question is, how is Cryptomator different in this respect? Boxcryptor have told us the following:
Unfortunately, Google releases updates to Google Drive File Stream in a rapid sequence and Google does not provide us with early access to new versions. This means we can only start adapting Boxcryptor to changes to Google Drive File Stream as soon as everybody else receives the new version. At the same time, Google is moving fast and that’s not always a good thing, especially because the virtual drive of Google Drive File Stream is not always following filesystem standards. Sometimes Google Drive File Stream behaves different than any other “regular” filesystem and this can break things in Boxcryptor which are unexpected. Other software might not be impacted by these quirks as much because Boxcryptor has to work with Google Drive File Stream in a more “low-level” way than most other software.
We keep providing debug logs, and they keep providing experimental versions of the software which work for a time. However, this is massively disruptive for our business - and we are looking for something better.
So, in addition to this question, would Cryptomator be suitable for a) Google Team Drives and b) for business use?
Thanks in advance.
