I give up. I cannot delete this from my Mac.
I followed the instructions but it keeps coming back. In my documents folder and on the top of my desktop.
Help please.

Here are two client-side encrypted cloud services that are entirely Mac-friendly:

Arq
SpiderOak

I suggest you look at their services.

I have no experience with BoxCryptor. But I can tell you that both Arq and SpiderOak provide access to your files on iOS devices while providing 100% privacy, no illegal, unconstitutional snooping allowed. But be sure to do your homework and read about them as both services have their quirks.

Also note: Apple's iDisk app provides the ability to make your own encrypted, expandable disk images. They are called sparsedisk and sparse bundle images. I use them via Dropbox. They aren't accessible via iOS, but they let you essentially do what BoxCryptor does for you. There are a lot of tutorials on the net to help you set them up.

You mean Apple's Disk Utility app on the Mac end, right? They can also be read/write while not being expandable (or sparse as Apple likes to call them). And this is a great built-in solution indeed (unless you need to access the files on iDevices — which BoxCryptor can, though read-only).

I use Arq for many years now and I'm still very happy. Saved me once, so for me Arq is priceless ...

The big problem is if you use Dropbox, Box, etc on iPad or iPhone you can not decrypt!

I'm sorry to say that, but there are mobile versions of Boxcryptor for iOS and Android. Please have a quick look at their site: https://www.boxcryptor.com/en/download

Thanks for the info,b but at the time I posted that there was not an iOS version.

This sounds nice but there are huge tradeoffs with this implementation:
- No Spotlight support
- No web access from dropbox.com
- No support for Dropbox-enabled apps

How should Spotlight be able to access your data when it is encrypted? To such a feature Boxcryptor would need to provide an interface to Spotlight that lets Spotlight access your plain text data. That would totally undermine the whole point for encryption.

Now I can feel secure knowing all my photos on Dropbox are encrypted. Very Happy!

Works well... except Spotlight isn't supported. 5 stars when it is.

So what's the difference between the free and the $39.99 personal edition? Went to the developer's site and there is no obvious explanation of this.

Really don't care for webpages of applications that intentionally obscure or hide these matters. Users and potential users like transparency.

Paid versions allow file and folder names to be encrypted, in addition to encryption of file contents provided by the free version.

Paid version also allows multiple BC drives to be configured, which someone else noted below.
