So now that you set up your own syncmachine that will push all your data encrypted to your Amazon Clouddrive, it’s time to up the ante. A quick recap: At this point you can mount and decrypt your Drive into a local folder and read files with ‘ok’ speeds. Writing actually takes ages because if you copy/move a file into your clouddrive decrypted folder the whole process of encrypting and uploading takes place. This is annoying for large files and some programs have serious problems with that.
So if you are a CouchPotato like me, that has some issues coming up on your Sonarr, err, Radar you want those issues to be gone. So like magic you raise your wand and begin to cast the “Abra-ca sabnzbd” spell.

If that sentence made no sense to you, well no worries. Here is an analogy:
- You download you favorite Linux ISO with your favorite command line tool.
- You save said ISO in a temporary folder somewhere.
- You wrote or got a neat program that scans and sorts your temp folder into your CloudDrive.
- The program starts a copy/move from the temporary directory into the Clouddrive.
- Encfs and acd_cli start working on encrypting and uploading.
- Before the copy/move command completes your tool throws a timeout.
- Nothing happened.
Also if you share your CloudDrive folder with Samba it is annoying to transfer several GB worth of data. The wait kills at least me. I don’t like to wait.
Let’s fix all that. Now.
