HiDrive with Boxcryptor

Encrypt your online and offline HiDrive data with Boxcryptor. Since Boxcryptor uses character lengths greater than 255, this can lead to errors during the transfer of encrypted files. We'll show you how to avoid them.


You have installed Boxcryptor on your computer.

Option 1:

For files in HiDrive, only file names with less than 70 characters can be used. This prevents the errors from occurring.
Existing file names can easily be changed as needed.

Option 2:

Disable file name encryption:

  • Right-click on the Boxcryptor icon in the taskbar.
  • Open settings in the menu.
  • Select the Security tab.
  • Uncheck Enable file name encryption.
