I want to use a sync client to backup my work folders. Working in the virtual Cryptomator drive can create a lot of i/o and I don’t need a permanent sync. I’m fine to do a sync once a day or so.
So usually I would just pause my sync client for the cloud storage and work in the directory. Then when I want to sync I would manually enable sync again.
When I use Cryptomator in between, I can’t work in this folder, because without the tresor open I can’t access the files in it.
I’m wondering if there is a non hacky, reliable workaround for this?
Symlinks was was first idea but seems not the be supported 100% without headache?
The only other idea would be to sync the work folder occasionally to the virtual tresor drive, which I would like to avoid because of the complexity and therefore higher chance or errors (cloud sync -> cryptomator -> sync to cryptomator form local drive WHEN the tresor is open).
