This question addresses all platforms I guess, but I the current issue I have with the Desktop App (Mac).
Cryptomator creates lots of files – far more than the original decrypted amount of files. I have a project that I organize with a lightweight documents management tool (EagleFiler). This is the outline of the files I have:
4 Text Files
=> 642 Objects
EagleFinder after start synchronizes its internal database with the file base and touches the files (for whatever reason). This leads to 2009 file changes in Cryptomator. And that takes several minutes on a fast internet connection to synchronize with GoogleDrive.
What is the reason that the number of files is more than 3 times as high compared to the file system? BTW I assume that not even all files have been touched so that the actual ratio is even worse than 2009 / 642.
