I am using MAcOSX with Snow Lion and the latest Boxcryptor client and dropbox 2.0
I have just created a new boxcryptor disk on a dropbox folder and enabled filename encryption. I am seeing some strange behaviour (at least for me! :).
I have copied an Aperture Photo Library in it. Just accessing the photo library and not doing any modification: Opening and closing.
Triggers 1000s of files to be uploaded in Dropbox.
I understand by opening an aperture library files would be updated, like timestamps...
but I just find it odd that we are speaking about 1000s of files.
So I am just wondering if there is any reasons why by enabling filename encryption it could slow down dropbox sync?
Especially when we are speaking about boxcryptor drives with 1000s of files.
Do you get the same performance with or without filename encryption?
do the same number of files are created?
Do file attributes change the same way?
Not a big problem... but I'd like to know if I should better revert to a boxcryptor drive with no filename encryption or not.
