    Anyone out there using a cloud service like OneDrive (or Google Drive) together with a virtual encrypted drive, such as VeraCrypt , to be stored within OneDrive.
    The VeraCrypt virtual encrypted drive to be mounted before use.

    Am using Office 365 and basically have a 1TB OneDrive that goes with O365

    I am considering to:
    1. to relocate OneDrive to another partition (my 512GB SSD C-drive is too small)
    2. then create a virtual encrypted disk on OneDrive
    3. copy important files in there as a backup (Office documents, PDFs, etc)
    4. the folders/files within the encrypted disk are NOT to be synchronized (deselect in OneDrive settings - "Choose folders"), else OneDrive may start synchronizing whereas the encrypted container drive may not have been mounted. So: manual sync.

    I have no experience with this nor with file encryption.

    Note: I think... file encryption will use more resources than copying files to a virtual encrypted drive.
    A virtual encrypted drive may take some time to create in first instance, but after that it is like any other drive.
