similar question: Encrypting and compressing
I want to make a regular backup and store it as encrypted tar archive. That's achievable using
gpg. But for incremental backups this would require to decrypt the entire archive.
- Is there a way to decrypt only a single file from that archive?
- As workaround, would it be safe to encrypt the single files rather than the entire archive?
- Are there other linux tools that are more suitable for encrypted incremental backups?
