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:
- Each encrypted file gets a 88 bytes file header, see: https://docs.cryptomator.org/en/1.5/security/architecture/#file-header-encryption
- Every 32 KiB of data, 48 bytes will be added (nonce + MAC), see: https://docs.cryptomator.org/en/1.5/security/architecture/#file-content-encryption
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.
wow. perfect @tobihagemann .
awesome answer, clarify a lot about the free space I need to create and upload huge vaults.
thankyou so much.
