I am searching for an easy way to Sync local hosted Cryptomator encrypted files with local not encrypted directory.
The scenario is to host Cryptomator encrypted vault locally (with a cloud sync but this is less important for my inquiry), and find an easy way to sync the files from the encrypted vault to a local not encrypted directory.
Sory in advance if this was mentioned earlier in the forum + maybe there is updated info regarding this issue.
Hi, I am using Carbon Copy Cloner to sync files in realtime, but you can probably use any tool to sync your files from the Encrypted to the local unencrypted folder.
Major downsize with Cryptomator is; This only works till the next reboot of your Mac. Cryptomator doesn’t load the Vault on the same “location” after a reboot, so your sync tool can not find the encrypted files anymore. You need to go to your sync tool again and change the source location. As far as I know the developers can’t make the location static.
I am using windows. I wish to keep one copy of the files inside Cryptomator vault (encrypted) + second copy in a local directory (not encrypted), and find a way to sync the unencrypted directory with the vault one (needless to say: after mounting the vault).
Michael suggested “PersonalBackuo” software. I will try it later.
Your suggestion was Rclone. I will try it later. If you can give more tips or help regarding Rclone it would be great.
Thanks for all the members that contributed to the discussion so far.
Rclone can mount over 50 cloud servers. I use it on Windows, Android, and Linux.
I do most of my document storage on Google Drive and I also have a pcloud account and that’s my backup server for Google Drive. I use rclone to keep my Google Drive and my pcloud drive files in sync with each other.
My vaults live in the cloud.
You can synchronize remote to remote, local to remote, local to local.
Today i tried Syncovery, a software that i already own, but did not occur to me it could be usable with Cryptomator. I do not know if it can open and mount Cryptomator vault so i used it after manually starting Cryptomator and mounting the vault. The results seem to be great. It is a huge step for me.
Rclone looks to be very advanced, but it seems that it does not have graphical interface, and needs to be learned deeply. For my needs it looks too much.
