You can use Cryptomator for Windows, Mac and Linux free of charge without any restrictions. If you like it, we would be happy about a donation. There are no ongoing fees for the iOS and Android app after the one-time purchase.

VeraCrypt is a great tool for encryption local hard drives. With VeraCrypt all your files are bundled in a single encrypted container. A change in one small file would cause the whole container to be updated. While this works flawlessly on local devices, most cloud services would attempt to sync the whole container.

Cryptomator on the other hand encrypts each file individually. If you update one document, only these changes will get synchronized.
