Encryption options

Post by zekeblue » Sat May 11, 2019 11:48 pm

I use SB Pro to backup my laptop to a NAS. I would like to have the backup on the NAS encrypted. Are there options besides zip files?

For example, if I use QNAP's encryption or third party encryption of a shared folder, can SB handle feeding the password to be able to do scheduled backups? Or any other options I could look at?

Thanks!

I'm playing with SyncBack containers, but haven't gotten that to work yet.

I've created an encrypted folder on my Synology and can backup to it once I've unlocked it on the NAS. It seems to stay unlocked whether I am logged into the NAS or not. I will have to find out if, I leave it unlocked, it is still secure if someone takes the drives or the whole NAS but can't log in to it.
