Perhaps a bit of background is called for—
I use DropBox
, not for sharing data per-se, but because DB gives me 3GB of free, off-site storage space.
While I maintain several rotating backups, I have no off-site storage. Thus, were I to have a home fire, my tears would be most bitter.
I am concerned that sooner or later, the server upon which DropBox is resident, will be hacked and the private/sensitive data I have there will be compromised.
And so I decided to encrypt my data prior to uploading it to DB. Now, all I need do is access DB from any Mac with an Internet connection, DL my encrypted data, enter my PW, and voilà.
I just wanted to know what would happen were I to access my DropBox DMG folders from a PC.
And now I know. Many thanks Kevin!
