    • VeraCrypt is for encrypting local files, cryptomator is for encrypting remote files as they are uploaded to cloud providers Guest • 5 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • 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. teewetAug 2017 • 4 agrees and 13 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Does not do encryption of local files, partitions, or drives Guest • Jul 2018 • 0 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Only encrypts files that are to be uploaded to dropbox or google drive, no local volume support Guest • Feb 2017 • 3 agrees and 33 disagrees Disagree   Agree
