Encrypted Folders : What side does the crypting ?


Recommended Posts


I have a slow PC that I want to share an encrypted folder on.

I was wondering what side does the encryption  ?   Is it done on the main pc and sent encrypted to the receiving pc that just receives the file ?

Or does the file is sent in the clear and gets encrypted on the receiving pc ?


Also, is the hashing time consuming ? For a 8TB hard drive for example ? Or is there a hardware chip that does it without overusing the CPU ?


thanks for the input
