Local decryption of encrypted folders?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am struggling with an experimental decryption of an encrypted folder locally on the backup system (the encrypted node).

I am trying to follow the procedure in https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/207370466-Encrypted-folders, but no joy.

My Windows 10 command line is like this: C:\Users\myusername>"C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync\Resilio Sync.exe" /DECRYPT <my RW key> "C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync\<db name>.db" "D:\Data\Synced_files" "D:\Data\Synced_files_out"

All that happens is that I return to the prompt. No error message. No files decrypted in "D:\Data\Synced_files_out" after I run the command. The key I am using is the RW key, although I encrypted the files with the E key. That seems to be right; trying other keys generates an error message. I think my problem may be that I have not chosen a good database file. My "C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync\" directory has several files ending in ".db" and the log does not clearly refer to any of them. Does anyone have a more definite way to find, from the "sync.log" or some other method?

I appreciate any help or advice.
