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


Question

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.

There isn't a way but know that there is a massive speed degradation, between the two.

No, there isn't a way to enable it after the fact.  You'd need to create a new drive.

 

This is because the encryption is one of the features that determines how the data is constructed for the drive.  It can't be toggled.

There shouldn't be, but this also depends on the CPU you're using.
