How to Use Encrypted Libraries

DosDrive provides client-side end-to-end data encryption. You can create encrypted libraries to use this feature. File contents in encrypted libraries are encrypted on client side. The encryption password is not stored on the server. So even the server administrator can't access your file contents.

When creating an encrypted library:

  • If you create an encrypted library in the web app, the password is sent to the server. The server use this password to create the library. But it doesn't store the plain text password.

When you access the encrypted library:

  • If you use web app, you have to input the password to the server. The server will cache the password in encrypted format for 1 hour. It won't store the password on disk.

Note that encrypted library only encrypt the contents of the files, but not the folder and file names.
