UPDATE: EncFS is considered to be insecure (see this Audit), i will use eCryptFS instead, see this manual. If you still want to use EncFS use gnome-encfs-manager instead of gnome-encfs below.
I have some sensetive Data on my Laptop i want to sync with other Computers i own, found this Howto on howto do that. Theres also a Windows "port" of encfs - safe, didn't test it tough.
This is what i did (on Linux Mint 17 64bit):
sudo apt-get install encfs cd ~/Downloads wget https://bitbucket.org/obensonne/gnome-encfs/raw/tip/gnome-encfs mv ~/exchange ~/exchange2 sudo install gnome-encfs /usr/local/bin/ mkdir ~/Dropbox/.encrypted_exchange ~/exchange encfs ~/Dropbox/.encrypted_exchange ~/exchange/ # answered "p for paranoia mode gnome-encfs -a ~/Dropbox/.encrypted_exchange/ ~/exchange # enter, then password, then Y cat /etc/mtab | grep encfs # Should give one line with /home/your_username/exchange cd ~/exchange && rsync -avP ~/exchang2/* . du -sh ~/exchange ~/Dropbox/.encrypted_exchange ~/exchange2 # All 3 folders should be a the same size # rm -r ~/exchange2 # Do this only if you have a backup!
