      VeraCrypt vs BoxCryptor Classic opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Veracrypt creates disk containers that are then used to store files. Boxcryptor Classic uses EncFS to individually encrypt files. This makes BC favorable for clouds because then you're uploading the files themselves (encrypted), versus one huge file that could take forever to decrypt.
