Hey Team,
Released PG Blitz – Encrypted Edition.  This forum is for any feedback for any issue in regards to that specific edition.
Just notes below:
From 7.4.9 Beta

Reconstructed entire menu process (looks the same to you; coding is more streamlined)
Add PGBlitz Encrypted

Tons of new code added (took 20 hours)
PGBlitz Encrypted automatically adds gcrypt (incase someone use PG Move Encrypted)


Users no longer edit the rclone.conf for any reason!

This build now adds gcrypt and tcrypt out of the box when using encrypted transport methods


If using using this on an existing box, gdrive and tdrive need to be reconfigured again (through the automatic process)

This applies gcrypt and tcrypt accordingly; recommend to generate new keys and etc


If user fails to put in password/salt for encryption and attempts to launch gdrive or tdrive for encrypted editons; it will stop them and to prevent further execution.
Several Visual Tweaks

Hopefully this makes others happy! Took forever to code and grasp! Much of the assistance came from @Deiteq @flicker-rate and @physk's past work. It's the reason why PG Clone was created; to generate simplicity in the deployment of pgblitz and pgmove.

Thanks for this. I tried to install it but for some reason gcrypt didn't deploy. I have a hetzner cloud instance running 7.4edge and another running 7.4.8, I noticed that the gcrypt option is missing from the 'OAuth & Mounts' section for 7.4edge.
I tried deploying pg move w/ encryption and it's the same problem, no gcrypt deployment.

hey no problem @kamos69 i'll check it out; which is why it was released as a beta. i saw it work, but not pure out of the box. i'm making videos along the way, so i'll check it out. did the overall deployment work other than the gcrypt not coming up?

Is it possible to switch from PG Move encrypted to PG Blitz encrypted? Can I use the same keys?

Tested and it works now. My main issue is that my encrypted folder is not called "encrypt", it has a different name. I guess best would be to rename it to avoid complications.
Yep I keep it standardized for simplicity.

Hi all,

It has been a long time.

I am currently trying to copy all my non-encrypted media over to encrypted using PG blitz and it isn't working how I would like it too.

Currently I have it writing to the local disk via this command "rclone copy gdrive:/tv/ /mnt/move/tv/" *edit* this also causes an extremely high api call on gdrive.

This writes to local disk, is there any way to make it stream across while still using pg blitz?

Doing "rclone copy gdrive:/tv/ tcrypt:/tv/" is extremely quick but doesn't use pgblitz and will end up getting the 750gb daily ban.

Any idea on how I should be going about this? @Admin9705

Thanks ;)

I am migrating from an encrypted PGMOve config to the new encrypted PGBlitz setup. I have my old system that has PGMOve running right now and I have a new system setup to test the encrypted PGBlitz.

I am noticing a problem with adding the original encryption passwords.

the new PGBlitz system can see the unencrypted data just fine. It cannot see the Encrypted data. I ran the config twice and was very careful with inputting the passwords and salt without any additional chars or linefeeds.

It looks as if there is CR or LF being added to the beginning of the password. When I run "rclone reveal xxxxxxxxx" I get the same output from both systems, except the new PGBlitz system has a CR added.

What'd you end up doing?
Sorry for the late reply, I ended up unmounting unionfs and remounting it using "unionfs-fuse -o cow,allow_other /mnt/move=RW:/mnt/tcrypt=RO /mnt/unionfs/ "

then running "rclone sync gdrive:/tv/ /mnt/unionfs/tv/ -v"

this allowed the sync to see all content on the team drive as well as content in the move folder without syncing the same files over and over. you are going to need a large drive or limit your download speed to the same as your upload eg 500mbit down and 500mbit up.
