Cryptomator vs VeraCryptProvides the same functionality as an encrypted virtual disk, but allows you to quickly sync it to the cloud.Now, it does support saving the encrypted files into local storage. But it does need an internet connection. So even the local storage can't be decrypted without an internet connection, I do not understand why, In my opinion local storage en-/decryption shouldn't depend on internet connection.Doesn't provide the same functionality i.e. a locally encrypted disk volume.VeraCrypt is for encrypting local volumes/disks. Cryptomator is for encrypting files/folders for upload to cloud provides (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive).VeraCrypt is for encrypting local files, cryptomator is for encrypting remote files as they are uploaded to cloud providersDoes not do encryption of local files, partitions, or drivesOnly encrypts files that are to be uploaded to dropbox or google drive, no local volume support
