How much larger are encrypted files?

Very useful information about difference of file dize from encrypted to decrypted, thank you @infeo .

dear @infeo , its possible to know or calculate a percentage about how much files will increase? it will be good to know how many gb a 100gb files will increase after encrypting. thankyou.

You can actually calculate the ciphertext size to the last byte:

But to make it simpler, let’s put the file header aside. You can roughly expect a 0,146484375% increase.

A 100 GB file cleartext file will then be roughly a 100.15 GB ciphertext file.
