Forgot to enable encryption on initial creation - do I need to start from scratch?

Ryan Joachim


Like the title says, I totally missed the box to enable encryption on my StableBit folder and now I'm wondering if it's possible to turn encryption on after the fact (since some has already been uploaded), or if I should just delete everything and start from scratch?


I don't see an option to enable it, so I'm leaning towards the last option.

Even if the drive isn't encrypted, it will be at least obfuscated. 


Depending on the provider, it may actual include some basic encryption (required on some providers). 


That said, yes, you'd need to recreate the drive to enable encryption, as this is something that is set as part of the drive creation.
