    I intend to backup my whole system, secondary and external HDDs to Amazon Cloud. Currently my drives are not encrypted at all. I'm running Windows 10 (no UEFI).

    I was wondering what is the best way to securely encrypt private data before uploading it to Amazon's cloud? I would like to have on the fly encryption, so there would be no need to create a container any sync it manually with Amazon's cloud software afterwards, but rather sync and encrypt the whole drive in real-time.

    Quite some people recommend Boxcryptor, but it doesn't support Amazon's Cloud. Cryptomator seems like a good choice, but how secure is it, since it's not open source? There is also Duplicati, SyncBackPro and StableBit, do you have any experience with any? How do they compare? Any other recommendations?

    People usually want to "hide" information from other people but in time to implement do not want the information to be hidden, but available.

    Why? Because it gives work. Delay. You need to remember passwords.

    Yeah. What takes and gives work is the only secure way. If you want security, you need to rely on systems and passwords that only you know.

    System that use encryption standard, open on one side, as seen from one side is open, and therefore are not secure information.

    The vast majority of a Windows System there is no reason to be hidden. Only private and sensitive data. Separate your personal data from the system data. Then encrypt with password large, diverse and known only by you.

    If you do not give any value to security, to the work and to the delay in obtaining the information, then you do not want any security!
