Will Back In Time Support Encryption Anytime?
I really like the "Back In Time" interface, and I have it running every hour to back my home directory to an external USB hard drive.
I would also love to use "Back In Time" to back up some data to an off site file hosting service via the internet. However, I would only be willing to store my personal files on a remote location if I can encrypt my files and ensure a certain minimum of privacy.
I know that "Back In Time" is based on rsync, and that there is a command line version of rsync called "rsyncrypto" that provides encryption.
So I'm just wondering if there's any chance the "Back In Time" GUI will at some point offer the option of encrypting back up files.
Currently, I'm experimenting with using Deja Dup for off site back ups, but it is error prone, and the interface is not as easy to understand as "Back In Time".
Thank you for all your hard work, and I hope this is a feature that can be implemented.
Can you help with this problem?
