A while ago I wrote about the combination of encfs, GnuPG and a file synchronization software like OwnCloud. I used this for almost 3 monts and was really happy with it. But suddenly I experienced strange problems: it seemed that encfs was unable to decrypt files. When accessing a file I got something like an input/output error. Interestingly, the affected files were all different ones on my three computers that I synced via this solution. My educated guess is that OwnCloud created some kind of conflict that confused encfs which finally led to not accessible files.

So it is time for something new. This time I’m using Syncthing which is an open source P2P file synchronization solution.
