I use rsync.net for my cloud/offline backups. Here’s how to do encrypted backups using ecryptfs. Install ecryptfs-utils sudo pacman -S ecryptfs-utils Generate a passphrase ecryptfs-setup-private –nopwcheck –noautomount Mount rsync.net using sshfs and create a backup folder mkdir -p /home/your_user/rsync.net/ sshfs 99999@server.rsync.net: /home/your_user/rsync.net/ mkdir -p /home/your_user/rsync.net/backups/ Mount the backups folder as an encrypted filesystem and copy some files sudo mount -t ecryptfs ~/.Private /home/your_user/rsync.
