I've been really impressed with this app so far. I tried several other competitors before trying this one. I really wanted to use one of the free competitors, but they just couldn't do what I wanted in in the end. Boxcryptor does 98% of everything that I want and it is super easy to setup with Google Drive.

First day using it but so far so good! Free version works as expected on Win 11 and Android app, using Google Drive storage. I'm impressed with the concept, although it took some time to understand exactly what was happening. Now that I get it, it's super simple. I intend to use this as a replacement for AxCrypt which crippled the free version too much :(

Refuses to upload any files. I tried various file sizes. It just stops without warning and that's it. Nothing is uploaded. It just quits. (The app does not crash, it just stops uploading as if nothing ever happened) Other than that, that app seems like it would be great. But for me, it is just for looks and is absolutely useless.
