Cloud Encryption Required?

Question

From what I can tell from the docs on CloudDrive, data on cloud services is always unreadable by others, unless they have the CloudDrive software. From the online doc: "For any cloud drives where you choose not to encrypt the drive, StableBit CloudDrive will obfuscate the drive's data using AES 128-bit CBC." If there is no way around this, then it is a problem for me. I would like to mount cloud drives which can be read by other people using other cloud drive software, on the web, or other cloud explorer software. In my case it would not be practical to buy licenses for everyone who might need access to the data. Is it possible to configure CloudDrive so that the data on the cloud provider is standard, readable data?

AFAIK you cannot have multiple people access the data from different devices if you are using cloud drive due to the reasons you state above. You can also only mount the drive to one computer.

 

You may want to look into the "Google Drive Desktop App".
