Espionage 3 / What happens with the files after decryption/encryption?
« on: September 05, 2016, 02:12:00 PM »
Hi there,

I've been deciding which encryption software to use and I narrowed it down to Concealer vs Espionage 3.
Would you mind helping me out with a few doubts I have?

1. What happens with the files once they are decrypted and encrypted again? Do the decrypted files' bytes sit somewhere around the harddrive? Is it not possible to recover them after that?

2. Related: Will there be any option in the future not to trash the encrypted data? Right now the folder is automatically placed to the trash after the first encryption. But there is no more secure empty  in El Capitan, meaning I have to pull out the trash and use either terminal or some third party program to get rid of it. So it just adds extra work to send it to trash.

3. The backing up of the files and passwords is kind of confusing for me (see the Dropbox sync tutorial). That means that if I don't copy the password of the folder and I accidentally lose my Espionage install, my files are gone forever. Now as far as I could test Concealer this does not happen there. If I change the bundle's location in Concealer, I reinstall it, I can still just choose the bundle file and access it with my password. Is there any benefit in your solution?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Frank
