I am considering a solution for securing my private data in Dropbox. In spite of OneDrive, MEGA and AmazonCloud are also being considered but now I put my focus on Dropbox as the most feature-rich of all.
I came to the couple of options that are available for my aims:
- Set up separate EncFS volume
- Use in-place EFS encryption for files and folders
- Use BitLocker volumes (not appreciated)
Dear Gurus, can you give me advantages and disadvantages of all above solutions from security (primarily!) and convenience perspectives?
I am not keen into installing additional stuff like with EncFS, the more so it is paid (free version of BoxCryptor is very ill-functioned). Moreover, it is commonly known EncFS also has drawbacks.
Built-in solutions (like EFS and BitLocker) wll be highly appreciated but how do they look in sense of security against EncFS?
Security is a must however it'd highly preferable to leave Dropbox features (file preview, versioning, etc.) enabled. Maybe things look different if I choose another cloud hosting (MEGA, OneDrive)?
