Hi, I’d like to know if Cryptomator is a safe replacement for veracrypt for non-document usages. I’ve read and understood the security differences, and the ability to encrypt each file separate is what I’m going for: to keep files encrypted at-rest and to sync them between two machines using SyncThing (although a backup to the cloud can also be done). I came across this post, though, which says it’s not meant for anything but encrypted cloud sync.
I’d like to use it for encrypting various activities, including CAD design and web development. I noticed that deleting the nodejs package directory, “node_modules” took a REALLY long time from a cryptomator vault, but was relatively fast when using veracrypt, though this makes sense since every little file is encrypted separately. Operations like that should be pretty rare though and I’m willing to live with the performance hit. Question is – is my usage safe? Will I encounter any downsides besides the occasional slowness when there’s high I/O? If yes, is there alternative software that is recommended that enables quick/immediate syncing?
