Generate encrypted folder locally


Recommended Posts

I have a folder on my laptop and would like to back it up to a remote computer using bittorrent sync. The remote computer is untrusted and, thus, I will only install the encrypted key on it (which will give no read or write rights). This works fine when the encrypted backup is done to a remote computer over the network. However, I would like to be able to do it locally the first time because the amount of data to be backed up is large. The problem is that the bittorrent sync client does not let me create two versions of the same folder on the same computer (one with read/write rights and the other with only the encrypted key).

I contacted bittorrent sync support and they answered the client simply does not support having two versions (one encrypted and one in the clear) of the same folder on the same computer. Does anyone know if there is a workaround to do that?
