Encryption

Due to the current state of privacy invasion I've decided to encrypt my hard drive.  I've been reading on this site and I think vbckup2 will work but store in plain text.  Is my understanding correct?  If not, how does it work with encryption or does it?

Depends on how exactly you set up your drive encryption.

If it's with Bitlocker, then copying anything off a bitlocker-ed volume to one that doesn't have it will naturally decrypt it and store it as is. This is not specific to Bvckup2. Volume encryption is tied to its host device. If the data leaves its bounds, it will do so unencrypted.

Interesting..Thank you.  I guess i have to figure out how secure my USB drive attached to my Synology router is.
